Licensed medical marijuana growers in Illinois would be able to supply adult-use cannabis for four years after legalization, according to a report commissioned by licensed MMJ businesses.

The industry report contradicts a Legislature-commissioned study that predicts Illinois’ 16 licensed marijuana cultivators would be able to supply only 35%-54% of demand if recreational marijuana is legalized.
