Officials Say No to Evergreen Park Pot Clinics For Now

Evergreen Park officials want time to figure out where potential marijuana clinics could go, according to a report.

Evergreen Park trustees approved a moratorium this week on issuing building permits for potential medical marijuana facilities within the village, according to The Reporter.

Issuing the freeze gives the Village of Evergreen Park board more time to approve where marijuana clinics could be located, according to the report. So far, no clinics have come forward wanting to start up in Evergreen Park.
