After a great year of progress for the cannabis industry, the good news keeps rolling on with a new recreational market opening up in 2020. That’s right, Illinois, the 11th state to legalize recreational marijuana, will officially commence adult use cannabis sales beginning January 1, 2020. This historic occasion is sure to be ripe with support from consumers all around the state looking to purchase cannabis legally for the first time.
NOTICE: Due to strong demand and a successful first five days of recreational sales (totalling in over $10 million), many dispensaries are dealing with supply shortages.

Be sure to call the dispensary you're planning on visiting before you go to avoid any issues and ensure they're open to recreational customers.
