Local News

SOUTH BELOIT, Ill. (WTVO) — Outside of Rockford, construction is underway for South Beloit’s first marijuana dispensary, being built on Willowbrook Road off I-90.

In September, city leaders unanimously approved the dispensary.

They expect it to bring in anywhere between $600,000 and $900,000 in taxes through recreational marijuana sales.

However, before it can open the state needs to approve a recreational marijuana dispensary license.

The dispensary hopes to open next month.
