Second Metro East site gets cannabis dispensary license

A second Metro East outlet has been approved to dispense cannabis under the adult use law, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation announced today.

Licensed is The Green Solution, 2021 Goose Lake Road, Sauget

The law applies to “Secondary Site” adult use cannabis licenses, which allow an existing medical cannabis dispensary to obtain an adult use dispensing organization license within a limited geographic area.

This license will permit the dispensary to begin adult use cannabis sales at that location immediately, provided the dispensary complies with local zoning rules or other local laws. The state’s recent approvals raise the total number of approved adult use cannabis dispensary licenses to 48.

The state department said it anticipates receiving additional applications for early approval adult use licenses as municipalities adopt relevant zoning ordinances regarding adult use cannabis.

State law now permits Illinois residents who are at least 21 years old to legally possess up to 30 grams of cannabis flower and up to 5 grams of cannabis concentrate.
