Oglesby mayor getting antsy over lack of medical marijuana announcement

Posted by wlpo on January 8, 2015

Is there a chance that Governor-elect Bruce Rauner slows down medical marijuana even more in Illinois? Oglesby’s mayor is fearful of that happening.

In talking with the cultivation center applicant in Oglesby, Don Finley says he gets the sense that Governor Pat Quinn may not announce cultivation center licenses before he hands things over to Bruce Rauner on Monday. While Quinn has supported medical marijuana, Rauner’s been opposed to the idea.

Through Oglesby’s city Facebook page, Finley is asking you to call the governor’s office and urge him to take action on medical marijuana. Finley says even if Oglesby isn’t picked to grow medical marijuana, someone in the Illinois Valley will be fortunate enough to offer up new jobs.
