Cannabis Regulation Oversight Officer


The Cannabis Regulation Oversight Office (CROO) coordinates among all agencies involved in the direct regulation and taxation of Illinois' cannabis industry, while promoting effective policies to ensure diversity and equity.

The CROO also has explicit authority to collect information from the cannabis industry on an annual basis to “allow it to assess the extent of diversity in the medical and adult use cannabis industry” and designate information that must be provided by conditional adult use dispensing organization license applicants on the application to facilitate the disparity and availability study. 410 ILCS 705/7-30.
