Who We Are

Illinois News Joint is the premier resource for the Illinois cannabis industry. We are a small group of dedicated news people with a strong passion for the cannabis industry and how it relates to Illinois and beyond. We are committed to providing the most informative and educational resources for Illinois cannabis industry news, reviews, grow journals, features, interviews, dispensary directory, art, and apparel.

At ILNJ, we believe in the Oxford comma, and as such, we refuse to use AP as our house style. Instead, we prefer to stick with the Illinois theme and use Chicago Manual of Style.

Illinois News Joint owns copywriter to all original content published on Illinois News Joint and our social media platforms.
