This time last year, Teddy Scott and John Leja were partners at Polsinelli. Now they’re the top executives of a medical marijuana startup that by later this month will boast three manufacturing facilities and eight dispensaries operating in two states.

The company, PharmaCann, was awarded cultivation and dispensary licenses by the state of Illinois in February 2015. The dispensaries were among the first to open in Illinois when they launched in November.
