Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation issued the following announcement on Aug. 29.

The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation announced Thursday the first "Same Site" adult use cannabis licenses, which will allow an existing medical cannabis dispensary to obtain an adult use dispensing license. This license will permit the dispensary to begin adult use cannabis sales at that location starting January 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.

The medical dispensaries who have applied for and received early approval adult use licenses to date are:

The Clinic Mundelein

1325 Armour Boulevard

Mundelein, IL 60060

3C Compassionate Care Center - Joliet

1627 Rock Creek Boulevard

Joliet, IL 60431

3C Compassionate Care Center - Naperville

1700 Quincy Ave. #103

Naperville, IL 60540

Salveo Health & Wellness Dispensary

3104 N. Main Street

Canton, IL 61520

The Clinic Effingham

1101 Ford Ave. Ste. C

Effingham, IL 62401

The Department anticipates receiving additional applications for early approval adult use licenses as municipalities adopt relevant zoning ordinances regarding adult use cannabis.

Starting January 1, 2020, the law permits Illinois residents who are at least 21 years old to legally possess up to 30 grams of cannabis flower and up to 5 grams of cannabis concentrate. Registered patients in the medical cannabis pilot program may possess more than 30 grams of cannabis if it is grown and secured in their residence under certain conditions.
