Rock Island Has Set Its Cannabis Regulations
With the arrival of the new year, some big changes are coming to Illinois. Arguably the biggest is the legalization of marijuana in the state. And with that, new regulations need to be set. But for Rock Island, it was a fairly quick process.
According to the Quad City Times, the Rock Island City Council voted unanimously on Monday night to mandating a 3% sales tax ordinance for cannabis businesses that open in the city.
The council also decided on zoning regulations for these businesses, voting that "all cannabis business establishments must be located at least 100 feet from any residential zoning district."
As for where these businesses will get their supply from, the council mandated that cannabis craft growing and cultivation facilities will be allowed in all agricultural and industrial zoning districts.
Ironically enough, the city also decided on the official trick-or-treating hours during this meeting. (It was a big meeting, they covered a lot. But this made me giggle).
