Here's a couple things I know about day 1 of legal recreational marijuana in Illinois; LOTS of Rockfordians were excited to participate, and dispensaries may have underestimated just how excited they really were.

Over 500 people visited Sunnyside Dispensary on McFarland Road in Rockford alone to purchase recreational marijuana products yesterday, and the massive lines resulted in the dispensary having to close operations early on Wednesday.

Sunnyside will be reopening at 9 a.m. today, but will be instituting a few changes for recreational marijuana customers:
