Chicago Mayor Introduces Plan for Medical Marijuana Restrictions


On Tuesday, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel introduced a plan that would limit where medical marijuana dispensaries and growing operations would be allowed to open once the new bill goes into effect January 1.


Under Emanuel’s proposal, there would be special use permits from the Zoning Board of Appeals that would have to be issued to each dispensary or grow.  Additionally, the plan would limit the number of collectives allowed in the city of Chicago and only let them operate in manufacturing districts.


Alderman Edward Burke worked on the plan with the mayor.  He explained, “We regulate everything from liquor licenses to how many residences may be built above a certain height, so it makes sense to give Chicago residents some control over where these types of operations can be located.”
