Illinois is taking steps to simplify the cannabis dispensary license application process in the state.  The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation is filing rules in hopes of removing barriers for social equity applicants, and expanding opportunities targeted to the communities most impacted by the failed war on drugs.  The Pritzker Administration wants the new legal cannabis industry to reflect the diversity of the state.
