As of January 1, adults in Illinois will be allowed to legally buy small quantities of cannabis products for recreational use from licensed state dispensaries. However, while its launch has been highly publicized, the state’s cannabis marketplace is expected to grow slowly by design. John Lothian News dug deep into the prospects for the growth of this new economy in an interview with the principals of the Chicago cannabis consultancy supercritical, LLC, Jay Caauwe, Kerry Jordan and Sparky Rose, for their take on the emerging marketplace and a possible role for capital market investors.
