Barrington's advisory plan commission this week rejected the idea of recreational marijuana sales in the village. Casual pot use becomes legal in Illinois Jan. 1. Towns can't outlaw its use, but can decide to prohibit businesses that sell it or restrict their location. The plan commission at a meeting Tuesday evening recommended amending a Barrington ordinance to prohibit the use of recreational marijuana businesses. Barrington's director of communications, marketing and events, Patty Dowd Schmitz, said the issue is expected to go before the village board Nov. 11.
