A Look At The Marijuana Industry, Recreational Sales Coming Next Year

Starting next week, applications for 75 new marijuana store licenses in Illinois will be open until Jan. 1. While the Pritzker administration is optimistic recreational sales will start on time, many marijuana businesses worry they won’t be ready by then. That’s because a number of administrative rules over recreational pot have yet to be proposed.

Morning Shift looks into some of the concerns pot businesses have about the application process beginning Oct. 1 and recreational sales coming next year.
