Illinois: Assessing the $2 Billion Opportunity

Illinois recently became the first state in the country to legalize a commercial recreational cannabis market through its legislature.

The measure will allow incumbent medical cannabis licensees to begin adult-use sales on January 1, 2020. Dozens of additional grower, processing and retail licenses will be issued later in 2020 and 2021.

Marijuana Business Daily projects the market could hit up to $2.5 billion in annual sales when it matures.

In this session, you’ll gain insights on:

  • Licensing opportunities
  • Application timelines and requirements
  • Strategies to strengthen an applicant’s chance of success
