The "gold rush" of medical cannabis sales in Illinois is expected to start next year, and village government is doing the groundwork that could enable a dispensary to operate in Homewood.
An ordinance amending the village zoning ordinance to designate "medical cannabis cultivation centers and dispensing organizations as a special use in the limited manufacturing zoning district and providing specific standards governing said use" was on the village board's agenda at its June 24 meeting.
The measure was tabled so village staff could do additional research.
