Does the Act itself restrict the location of cannabis business or advertising?

The Recreational Cannabis Act itself prohibits a new cannabis dispensary from locating within 1,500 feet of another dispensary. Libertyville may further restrict the location through reasonable zoning regulations. The Act authorizes up to 500 dispensary licenses, allows dispensaries to operate from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and enables dispensaries, infusers and/or craft growers to share a facility if allowed by the local municipalities. The Act requires that cannabis advertising be at least 1,000 feet from school grounds, playgrounds, public recreational facilities, child care centers, public parks, public libraries, and gaming arcades (if that arcade is not limited to patrons 21+).
