Centreville considers medical marijuana proposal

A potential medical-marijuana facility drew a crowd to this week’s Centreville Village Council meeting.

Opponents of the proposal said their concerns include the effects marijuana has on students; the village’s ability to handle zoning, fees and legal ramifications; that marijuana fails criteria for acceptable medical use in the U. S.; and that it is not the type of facility needed in the community.

The council has been considering an ordinance that would allow medical marijuana growers, processors, secure transporters and safety-compliance facilities in areas zoned industrial, and provisioning centers in areas zoned local commercial.

Council president Keith Shears said village attorneys were at the meeting and are looking at the ordinance to do what is in the village’s best interest.
