Legalization could mean a boom in business for local artists

Their items are already on shelves in the Quad Cities area, including gift shops in Moline, in Cedar Rapids, and at Nature’s Treatment of Illinois in Milan, which began selling recreational marijuana Jan. 1.
As the saying goes, “Teamwork makes the dream work,” and for the DePauws, that saying stands true.
