CHICAGO – The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation has announced one more “Same Site” adult-use cannabis licenses. Two area businesses, one in Colllinsville and the other in Sauget, have had licenses approved.

This license will permit the dispensary to begin adult-use cannabis sales at that location, provided the dispensary complies with local zoning rules or other local laws. These recent approvals raise the total number of approved “Same Site” licenses to 49 and the total number of dispensaries licensed to sell adult-use cannabis up to 51.

The two area businesses are Illinois Supply and Provisions, 1014 Eastport Plaza Drive, Collinsville, 618-381-9229 and The Green Solutions, 2021 Goose Lake Road, Sauget, 309-434-5141.

Under the law, existing medical cannabis dispensaries are permitted to open an adult-use dispensary at the same site as their medical dispensary, as well as a second site for adult-use sales at a different location.
