Former Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, who left office earlier this month without granting medical marijuana business licenses as initially planned, had a shortlist of companies ready to go.
The list of several dozen businesses was released by newly-inaugurated Gov. Bruce Rauner’s office in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, and includes scores for the top contenders, according to The Chicago Sun-Times.
“No licenses will be granted until this process is thoroughly reviewed,” a spokesperson said in a statement emailed to Marijuana Business Daily.
The top scorer on the list was TGS Illinois, which drew a final score of 718 for one application and 717 for a second. Most of the others on the list scored somewhere in the 600s or below.
