Illinois begins accepting applications for marijuana businesses

Illinois officials are now accepting applications for people who want to open a medical marijuana dispensary or cultivation center, but the number of licenses are limited. Currently, 22 licenses are available for cultivation centers and 60 for dispensaries. WBEZ’s Susie An reports that this makes it difficult for applicants to setup their business as they may not get their license. (Photo: Flickr/Dank Depot)
