CHICAGO, Ill (WIFR) -- The state of Illinois will now allow medical cannabis dispensaries to stay open until 10 p.m. to better serve their patients.

Until now, medical cannabis sales could only be done between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., where adult-use ones could go two hours later.

“Serving medical cannabis patients continues to be at the heart of our cannabis regulation,” said Deborah Hagan, Secretary of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. “Our Department will continue working to ensure patients receive the level of service they have come to expect from our medical cannabis program.”
