Village of Gurnee issued the following announcement on Aug. 22.

On Monday, August 26th, 2019 the Gurnee Village Board will hold a regularly scheduled Committee of the Whole Meeting to discuss the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act, which legalizes the possession and private use of cannabis for Illinois residents over 21 years of age after January 1, 2020.

The Village Board will hear presentations from various stakeholders to provide different perspectives on the topic of recreational cannabis sales.
