Illinois Extends Application Deadline For Cannabis Licenses To April 30
Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker signed an executive order on March 28 further extending the timeline for cannabis infuser, craft grower and transporter license applications in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The deadline to submit applications for these licenses to the Illinois Department of Agriculture (IDOA) has been extended from March 30 to April 30. The July 1 deadline for the issuance of those licenses remains in effect.
IDOA will award up to 40 infuser licenses and up to 40 craft grower licenses. While there is no limit on how many transporter licenses will be awarded, applicants must score at least 75% of the available points and meet all other requirements before being granted a transporter license.
On March 12, Gov. Pritzer signed an executive order extending the application deadline for these specific cannabis licenses from March 16 to March 30.
