If you are looking to do a business with marijuana or hemp products, you can do so after preparing yourself with the rules, limitations, and processes involved. Since several states in the United States are legalizing the use of cannabis, the business has a future. However, you have to go through a lot before setting up your dispensary. You have to take care of several factors such as the licenses and permits required, rules and regulations for the use of cannabis, and a lot more. Apart from these, you have to concentrate on the constituents of the cannabis products you are about to sell. There will be some rules on these constituents also.


A Guide For Your First Trip To A Cannabis Dispensary

In my lifetime I have been labeled many things, both good and bad.

Now that I am a writer for Cannabis & Tech Today, the parents in my neighborhood don’t call me a “writer,” but “the dad who writes for the weed mag.”

An odd phenomenon has started occurring, parents are asking me to take them on a trip to visit a dispensary, since many of them have never been.

I try to explain they don’t need a guide and our local dispensary (because America now has local dispensaries, like Dairy Queens) Greenhouse is a great place to visit and very friendly to the Muggle (first timer).

Yet they insist. I get it, it’s a new experience, but it doesn’t have to be scary or intimidating.


More pot shops in Illinois? Lawmakers mull plan to create new dispensary licenses amid delays

Legislators in Springfield are hashing out a plan that one lawmaker says could potentially double the number of new marijuana shops as the state grapples with an ongoing licensing imbroglio that’s hampered the governor’s pro-pot agenda, the Sun-Times has learned.

A lottery to determine the winners of the next wave of 75 licenses has been delayed indefinitely after a string of lawsuits were filed in the wake of the announcement that just 21 groups qualified in September. Though Gov. J.B. Pritzker later created a process to give the more than 900 losing applicants another shot, that plan has also prompted legal action from three of the finalists.

Activists Say Black And Brown Chicagoans Are Being Ignored In Cannabis Dispensary Licensing

The lottery for licenses to run cannabis dispensaries in Illinois is set to happen in the next few weeks.

Gov. JB Pritzker vows there will be social equity as far as who gets those licenses. But several minority leaders call that an empty promise, and say Black and Brown Chicagoans are being ignored.

“It makes no sense that again, in 2020, Governor Pritzker, you have a Black lieutenant governor, you have a Black mayor of Chicago, you have a Black drug czar overseeing the marijuana industry here in Illinois, but you don’t have any Black-owned marijuana dispensaries?” said community activist Tio Hardiman.
