ROCKFORD (WREX) — Another business in Rockford will be able to become a recreational marijuana dispensary next year.
MedMar in Rockford was granted the access to become an adult use dispensary by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.
The license will permit the dispensary to begin adult use cannabis sales at that location starting Jan. 1, 2020, provided the dispensary complies with local zoning rules or other local laws.
In addition to opening adult use dispensaries at the same site of their medical cannabis dispensaries, existing medical cannabis dispensaries are permitted under the law to open a second site for adult use sales at a different location.
MedMar will be the second dispensary for adult use in Rockford after Mapleglen Care Center announced they were approved earlier this week.
