The Island Lake village board will meet Thursday to discuss possible rules for marijuana dispensaries in town.

The issue before the board is whether to refer a proposed zoning ordinance governing such businesses to the village's planning and zoning commission. The meeting is set for 7:30 p.m. at village hall, 3720 Greenleaf Ave.


As of Jan. 1, the recreational use of marijuana will be allowed in Illinois, and state-licensed dispensaries will be allowed to operate. But municipal governments can restrict or ban such stores. No medical marijuana dispensaries currently operate in Island Lake.
