Homewood approves recreational pot sales/ Orland, Mokena, DuPage County say no

Recreational cannabis sales were approved by the Homewood village board on Oct. 22. The board approved a zoning amendment 4 to 1, making recreational marijuana sales legal inside an M-1 zoning district, which is limited to manufacturing and business park areas. The same distinction was previously approved for medical cannabis sales…Click here to read David P. Funk’s story in the Homewood-Flossmoor Chronicle. Mokena reports that their Board voted to Ban Recreational Cannabis Sales earlier this month, as did Orland Park (see Orland Park just says no to recreational pot shops). And the Tribune reports that DuPage County Board says no to recreational pot sales, the first county in Illinois to do so.

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.
