Jun. 7—DANVILLE — While Seven Point Growing of Illinois’ Brad Zerman waits on a cannabis dispensary license from the state, he won two cannabis craft growers licenses.
Zerman on Monday said he hopes to close on 388 Eastgate Drive this week, to build Danville’s second adult-use cannabis dispensary.
Zerman said he won two craft growers licenses, through Seven Point and also Harvard Grow LLC.
He said he has a craft grower in the Chicago area to work with.
He had been looking at a craft grower’s site in Harvard, Ill., in McHenry County near Chicago. He said due to the long licensing process, as many other developers who couldn’t hold onto their buildings because sellers wanted to sell the buildings more quickly, he lost the contract on the property.
He said he’s hunting for another property in the Chicago area that allows cannabis cultivation, and may hone in on one this week. They’re bringing an engineer and contractor to a property to see if it would work, and may make an offer this week, he said.
Zerman also said when they applied, they applied for two licenses, for strategic reasons.
The rule has changed where someone could be on up to three different licenses, he said.
