With the approval of the Illinois Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act in 2019, Illinois became the first state in the U.S. to legalize recreational marijuana sales through legislation rather than voter initiatives. Vermont’s legislature allowed recreational usage but not sales (later legalizing sales after Illinois had already done so). Illinois is estimated to produce between $2 and $4 billion in annual income from recreational sales if it reaches full maturity. Illinois will also expunge an estimated 700,000 marijuana-related police records and court convictions in a staged manner expected to be finished by 2025, making it the first state in the country to do so. Since legalization, Illinois has seen an average monthly revenue of $40 million from recreational cannabis sales. Chicago hosts an impressive 44 cannabis dispensaries as of 2021.

Beware Of Fraudulent Service Solicitations

Non-authorized groups have targeted NECANN exhibitors (and pretty much every other cannabis convention exhibitor) with phone and e-mail solicitations offering services such as phony hotel and travel reservations, as well as access to exhibitor contact databases and attendee information. NECANN does not sell its exhibitor or attendee lists, and these businesses are unrelated to us. If you receive a solicitation from a third party, or from anyone or anything claiming to be an authorized vendor or claiming to be linked with NECANN, please submit the information to marc@necann.com.
