It’s been almost a month since recreational cannabis became legal here in Illinois. Last week during our State of Cannabis coverage, we touched on some of the biggest challenges that Illinois has faced during this transition, including product shortages, the persistence black market cannabis sales, issues navigating the expungement process for prior cannabis offenses.
