IDOA Adult Use Cannabis Emergency Rules

The Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act gave the Illinois Department of Agriculture the authority to adopt administrative rules through the use of emergency rulemaking.  The Department's emergency rules took effect on January 1, 2020 and will remain in effect for 180 days.  Applications for Craft Growers, Infusers, and Transporters will be accepted and scored under the provisions of the Department's emergency rules.


The Department will also file proposed rules that must undergo notice periods and public comment prior to adoption. After the proposed rules are adopted, they will cover future application periods and the regulation of licensees.  For more information on the rulemaking process, please visit the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules website.
