Mayor, alderman want to limit medical marijuana dispensaries
Several rules could be in place when medical marijuana operations start up next year.
Starting January 1, Illinois will become the 20th state to allow medical marijuana.
Mayor Emanuel and Alderman Ed Burke want to limit where dispensaries and growing operations can be.
Under their proposal, those places would be confined to manufacturing districts, need special use permits and have parking space requirements.
There would only be one growing center for each state police district.
This proposal would be an addition to the state law.
