Naperville Says Yes To Pot Sales.
So when pot was legalized in Illinois, Naperville said there would be no recreational sales in the town. However in the following months, the amount of sales and of course the sales tax must have caught some ones attention because Naperville City Council voted 6-3 last night to permit up to three adult-use cannabis dispensaries in the city. Pot businesses will be permitted by right in business and industrial zones, meaning a hearing is not required before granting permission to move in, as would be the case with conditional zoning. Dispensaries will need to be at least 250 feet from residential property, 1000 feet from primary and secondary schools, and one mile from other dispensaries. The dais has spent dozens of hours debating the issue over the past fifteen months since Governor J.B. Pritzker introduced the bill that would legalize recreational cannabis in Illinois.
