OUR WORK

CANNABIZ IL strives to promote the general welfare of the public and the medical benefits of cannabis. We work every day to ensure our product is grown and delivered safely, to create jobs and promote the growth of the cannabis industry, and to constantly innovate.

We are the experts at the state Capitol and in our facilities working to ensure and expand on the integrity of the state’s medical and adult use cannabis industries.

We are in constant contact with state legislators and state agency regulators to provide invaluable insight into the industry and to address problems and challenges. We work with our members to provide valuable insight into the law and suggest improvements.
