Should state lawmakers enact legislation legalizing the medical use of marijuana, Libertyville will have a plan in place to deal with any proposals. A proposed state law that failed to pass in the last legislative session but has been reintroduced would permit one distribution facility for each state Senate district to grow, harvest, and distribute cannabis. Local governments are authorized to regulate such facilities, but Libertyville would not be immediately equipped through its zoning code to handle such a request, according to village staff. The village board passed a resolution Tuesday directing the plan commission to hold a public hearing, should state legislation be enacted, to consider whether the zoning code should be changed to include such facilities and make recommendations on other conditions.
