Shortages Force Closing of Illinois Pot Dispensaries
January 7, 2020 6:23AM CST
CHICAGO (AP) Illinois recreational marijuana sales took a hit Monday with the closing of several dispensaries, because of product shortages.
The legal sale of recreational cannabis began last week Wednesday, with customers spending about $3.2 million on the first day. State officials report a little over $10.8 million in cannabis sales took place over the first five days, which dispensary operators say caused a product shortage.
The Rise dispensary in Mundelein was one of the facilities that was closed Monday…it’s open for regular hours today.
