Maybe you figured you'd let the weekend go by, and the crowds at Sunnyside Dispensary would thin down enough for a Monday visit. Well...

You got the part about the crowds of people waiting in line being less than the previous week and weekend correct.

There won't be any crowds of recreational marijuana fans waiting in line at Sunnyside Dispensary's 2696 McFarland Road location today. Not because they've streamlined the process, but because business has been so good, the owners are giving their staff a break. A much-needed day off.

All four Sunnyside marijuana dispensaries in Illinois will be closed Monday because business has been too good.

The owners said they need to give their staff a break after working 14-hour shifts, five days in a row.

They said there’s plenty of product, but not enough state-approved employees.

The dispensaries, in Lakeview, Elmwood Park, Rockford and Champaign, will open again at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
