FBI Approves Illinois Marijuana Business Background Checks

The FBI has approved the use of its criminal history records for out-of-state and federal background checks of Illinois medical marijuana business owners.

ILLINOIS:  Illinois officials say the FBI has approved the use of its criminal history records for out-of-state and federal background checks of medical marijuana business owners.
