Last Friday five proposed marijuana dispensaries in the city of Chicago received approval from the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals. Now the sites just need to receive approval from the state.
There are two approved River North locations that include Cresco Labs’ proposed spot at 436 N. Clark St. and MOCA Modern Cannabis’ planned shop at 216 W. Ohio St. The other three marijuana companies initially wanted to open shops nearby, but withdrew their applications.
Other approved locations include Windy City Cannabis’ spot at 923 W. Weed St. in the Goose Island neighborhood and MedMen’s planned shop about a block away at 1001 W. North Ave. However only one would likely win approval from the state as dispensaries must be at least 1,500 feet apart.
Nature’s Care Co. also received approval Friday to move forward with a dispensary at 810 W. Randolph St. in West Town.
