Homewood approves recreational pot sales/ Orland, Mokena, DuPage County say no
An additional Patch story reports that recreational pot in Oak Forest is to be discussed at a Nov. 6 public hearing.
Ted Slowik from the Tribune/Daily Southtown reports Recreational pot issue generating ‘enthusiastic’ debate throughout Southland as towns mull allowing sales, adding that residents had their say before the New Lenox Village Board voted 5-2 Monday night (Nov. 11) to prohibit adult-use cannabis businesses from operating in the village. Public debates like the one in New Lenox are playing out in municipal meeting rooms across the south suburbs. Some towns, such as Blue Island, Chicago Heights and Tinley Park, are leaning toward allowing retail sales, officials said.
