Medical marijuana application deadline is today for growers

Posted by wlpo on September 22, 2014

The state will accept applications for medical marijuana businesses until 3pm Monday.

There are around a dozen different companies trying to get the one license for a cultivation center in the District 17 state police coverage area. Peru, Oglesby, La Salle, Princeton and Ottawa all have approved plans for a cultivation center.

Providing medical marijuana to Illinois customers won’t be cheap. Growers will pay a 7% privilege tax on their marijuana sales and there is a non-refundable application fee of $25,000 and a first-year registration fee of $200,000.
