    A bill that seeks to restart the regulatory process for cannabis retail and growing licensing is set for consideration by a House committee on Friday.

    The House Executive Committee is poised on Friday to consider a bill (HB1443) meant to fix disparities in "social equity" cannabis retail licensing regulated under the state’s 2019 pot legalization law. The measure,  sponsored by Rep. La Shawn Ford (D-Chicago), seeks to address shortcomings in the original licensing process state leaders mapped out for marijuana growers. That measure hasn’t functioned as legislators imagined it would, leading to licensing delays and a bottleneck of applicants for social equity growers.
