Business owners who are hoping to open recreational marijuana shops in Illinois will get a second chance at qualifying for a license. The second chance comes after Governor J.B. Pritzker announced a procedure would allow applicants to correct their applications or get rescored. The move comes after applicants and lawmakers raised an uproar over the process, saying it was shutting minorities it was supposed to benefit. Under the new state procedure, any applicant who didn’t get a perfect score of 252 will receive a notice of deficiencies in their application, and a score sheet identifying the parts of the application where they lost points. Then, applicants may amend their applications, or ask the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to rescore their original application.
