News from the Illinois Valley

Plenty of competition for medical marijuana licenses

Posted by wlpo on October 3, 2014

If it seems like there’s a lot of interest in growing medical marijuana in the Illinois Valley that’s because there is.

Out of the 22 state police districts, District 17 covering La Salle, Bureau and Putnam Counties has the second most cultivation center applications with 13. Only the police district covering Will, Grundy and Kendall Counties has more applications with 14. Only one cultivation center will eventually get a license per district.

When it comes to dispensaries or places for patients to buy the medical marijuana, the Illinois Valley has four applications. There will only be one marijuana dispensary in District 17.

The state’s expected to announce cultivation center and dispensary license winners before the year is over. Actual medical marijuana should be ready for patients early next year.
