Mission Calumet City
Construction commenced at the beginning of September on the new Mission Calumet City dispensary that will serve both adult-use customers and medicinal patients.

"The Illinois market has been a triumph since implementing adult use cannabis and we are excited to be expanding our operations in the state to better serve the customers and patients that depend on Mission," said Gabe Mendoza, Vice President of Operations for Mission. "Like with our Mission South Chicago location, Mission Calumet City is committed to becoming a contributing member of the Calumet City community and playing our part in the ongoing economic revitalization of the area by providing a safe and beautiful home for all things cannabis."
The new store is slated to complete construction and begin serving customers before the end of the year.

In an effort to build a team of diverse experts and leaders in the field of cannabis, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker announced over two dozen appointments to the state's Adult Use Cannabis Health Advisory Committee, including 4Front President Kris Krane.
