UPDATE: Plans for marijuana dispensary near Wisconsin-Illinois border withdrawn
RICHMOND, Ill. —
“Developers who planned to build a marijuana dispensary just steps from the Wisconsin-Illinois border withdrew their petition after public opposition, according to Richmond, Illinois officials.
Neighbors told 12 News they were not fighting the dispensary itself, but the location on the road from Wisconsin.
The proposed site was right on U.S. Highway 12, at what neighbors say is a dangerous intersection. So many neighbors objected that a Monday planning meeting had to be moved to a larger venue at the local high school. Developers withdrew their petition before that meeting.”
Good. Something else Wisconsin does not need with easy access.
