— DIERSEN HEADLINE: According to pot pushers, “Illinois is making it hard — and expensive — to get a license to sell legal marijuana.”
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There currently are 55 medical marijuana dispensaries in the state. They would have the first crack at getting a second license to open another dispensary. Then, there will be 75 more dispensary licenses awarded before May 2020 and another 110 more licenses after Jan. 1, 2021, for a total of nearly 300 licenses. Applying for a license will cost $5,000, according to the legislation that was approved by the Legislature and signed by Gov. J.B. Pritzker. “It’s hard, it’s very difficult and it’s only getting harder as time goes on. But because the way the system is being set up and them being competitive, that’s just how it goes,” Wright said. “Until there is a licensing system that is noncompetitive and just requirement-based, it’s tough to get in.” Wright said it could be initially difficult for smaller operations, because as the industry has grown in the country, there are more and more multistate operators.)
