With state lawmakers talking about possibly legalizing marijuana for medical use, Island Lake officials on Thursday took steps to prepare for proposals to open distribution facilities. Trustees decided the village's plan commission will hold a public hearing to discuss whether the zoning code should be amended to include marijuana distribution facilities if such a law is enacted by the General Assembly. The commission also would discuss possible operating rules for such facilities.
