Proposed La Salle County medical marijuana cultivation center request receives a second change

Posted by wlpo on January 9, 2015

While Governor Pat Quinn puts off issuing licenses for medical marijuana cultivation centers, the La Salle County Board is delaying a vote for a proposed cultivation center on Route 34.

Medmen of Illinois, LLC wants to put a cultivation center near Leland, but a request for a zoning change was shot down by the La Salle County Zoning Board of Appeals. The zoning board says a cultivation center doesn’t fit into the county’s comprehensive plan.

The supporters of the proposal were able to convince the county board Thursday to sent the zoning change request back to the zoning board.

The state could announce cultivation center license recipients at any time.
