STATEMENT FROM THE CANNABIS BUSINESS ASSOCIATION OF ILLINOIS
The Cannabis Business Association of Illinois congratulates the state’s newest cannabis licensees and is excited to welcome them into the marketplace.
CBAI also welcomes the decision announced Monday by the Pritzker Administration to award as many as 60 additional craft grower and 60 additional infuser licenses to current social equity applicants. Many of these applicants have been waiting for more than a year for the process to play out, and this decision means they will be considered for these additional opportunities without going through the time or expense of re-applying.
Together, these actions are in line with the intent of the Illinois General Assembly to bring fairness, diversity and equity to the industry.
CBAI will continue to advocate for fast, fair administrative action, regulatory changes that support the industry, continued support for medical patients and amendments to the law that support all cannabis entrepreneurs.
