Company files lawsuit over medical marijuana permit process

CHICAGO (AP) – A Chicago company that failed to win a permit to grow medical marijuana has a court hearing in its lawsuit against the state of Illinois.

Attorneys for the company, PM Rx LLC, will ask a Cook County judge Tuesday for a temporary restraining order to halt the permit process in a region that covers Ford, Iroquois and Kankakee counties.

PM Rx filed the complaint last week against the Illinois Department of Agriculture, claiming the agency didn’t follow its own rules for licensing cultivation centers.

The company had applied for a license to grow marijuana in Kankakee. The state awarded the license to another Chicago company. Cresco Labs won the license in that district and in two other districts. Cresco plans to build cultivation centers in Lincoln, Joliet and Kankakee.
