Galesburg May Allow Cultivation For Medical Marijuana
(Galesburg, IL) -- Galesburg may soon allow for the cultivation and dispensing of medical marijuana. The recommendation comes from the city's Planning and Zoning Commission. Some city leaders think it's a good way to create jobs, plus it could bring in revenue. The city may be able to charge tax on the sale of marijuana. No formal applications have been submitted, although some people have made general inquiries. Under the proposed ordinance, legal uses would only be allowed on land away from schools, daycare centers, and residential areas. The proposal cleared the planning and zoning commission and it's scheduled to go before the city council next month.
