Barrington Hills board says No to marijuana sales


By Glenn Minnis | Oct 31, 2019


The Barrington Hills Village Board of Trustees has unanimously rejected a proposal that would allow recreational marijuana businesses to set up shop in town.

By a 6-0 vote, trustees said no to an ordinance that would allow for retail sales or other kinds of marijuana operations. The vote came just days after the Barrington Hills advisory zoning board of appeals recommended a ban on recreational cannabis businesses.

Recreational marijuana use by those 21 and older is set to become legal across parts of the state on Jan. 1. While towns are powerless in outlawing its use, authorities can decide whether or not to allow businesses that sell it to operate. In neighboring Barrington, village board members are expected to consider a recommendation from the advisory planning commission on Nov. 11 calling for the prohibition of recreational marijuana businesses.
