Coming soon to the Rockford area, another way to get your hands on legal weed.

We knew a couple of months ago that a new recreational dispensary was coming to town, but we had no idea when.

And while that's still up in the air, we do know for sure that a license has been issued for the place on March 16 according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

We also now know the name too. Of course, it's kitschy and kinda cute, The Happy Cannabis Company is going to be located at 4120 North Bell School Road.

It looks like it might be going in near or at the same spot as one of those old call centers from back in the day.

Outside of the mention by the Chicago Sun-Times in an interactive map, there are very few details regarding an opening announcement.

As of right now, The Happy Cannabis Company isn't on social media either.

Chicago Sun-Times:

Illinois now has 110 dispensaries licensed to sell recreational pot — more than ever before — after state regulators issued a slew of permits in recent weeks ahead of a critical deadline.


The now-expired deadline for a license may explain why we only know the name and not much else.

We'll just have to wait. When it opens, The Happy Cannabis Company will join two other Rockford dispensaries, Sunnyside and Mapleglen Care Center.
