US: Craft growers head to the Capitol to ask lawmakers to relax regulations

The cannabis industry in Illinois is expanding, with more dispensaries set to open, but some workers are asking lawmakers to fix some of the rules.

Representatives of Illinois’s small craft cannabis growers industry came to the Capitol Tuesday, asking for lawmakers to loosen some regulations previously set.

Dispensaries rely on small craft grower operations to stock their shelves.

“The good thing about Illinois is dispensaries can only put products in stores that come from Illinois craft growers, whether it’s craft growers, or the medicinal cultivators, which was almost sets a pathway for small companies like HT23 and other craft licensed craft growers,” Reese Xavier, CEO of HT23 Growers, said. “All dispensaries are dependent on the cultivators to put products on the shelves.”
