Governor Bruce Rauner has issued licenses for the medical marijuana cultivation centers and dispensaries in Illinois.  Rauner released the list yesterday afternoon that included 18 cultivation centers and 52 dispensaries with the Illinois State Police Districts, although several are applications are still under review.

Progressive Treatment Solutions was granted the permit for the cultivation center serving District 11 that covers the Metro East.  No location has been identified as of yet.  TGS Illinois, LLC, received one of the dispensary permits with a second under review.  The permit holder in Illinois State Police District 18 is Compass Ventures that will handle both cultivation and distribution.  That center is reportedly planning a location near Litchfield.  The governor’s decision comes just weeks after former Governor Pat Quinn failed to announce the license awardees in his final day in office.
