Medical Marijuana proposal moves forward in Oglesby

Posted by wlpo on August 19, 2014

A medical marijuana cultivation center in Oglesby is a couple steps closer to happening.

The Oglesby City Council and Zoning Board of Appeals Monday night voted to include cultivation centers as a recognized business. The Oglesby Planning Commission will tonight to vote on a special use permit for the proposed cultivation center near Love’s Travel Stop. Green Thumb Industries out of the Quad Cities wants to grow the marijuana.

The state has the final say where a cultivation center goes in the Illinois Valley. They’re expected to start sifting through applications next month.
