Next month’s event, the first of its kind hosted by the city, will help inform residents about employment and business opportunities in the recreational pot industry.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced Friday that the city will host its first-ever cannabis resource fair.
The goal of the fair, scheduled to take place from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Feb. 1 at the UIC Forum at 725 W. Roosevelt Rd., is to connect residents with employment and business opportunities in the growing recreational marijuana industry, city officials said in a press release.
“With our first-of-its-kind resource fair, we’re teaming up with experts representing all angles of this new industry to empower our residents who are either interested in learning more or becoming the next employee, business owner or investor in Chicago’s newest industry, with the resources they need to succeed,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot said in the release.
