Illinois has recently joined a number of states that are allowing the limited decriminalization of some use of cannabis. Under Illinois law the growing and dispensing of cannabis for medical use is now permitted. Accompanying the law is a set of complex and detailed regulations that govern all aspect of these operations, including physical security. This new industry poses a series of challenges for security professionals as they attempt to create security plans and programs for this new and highly regulated security environment. This panel will explore the process employed for the development and implementation of these security programs.
