Medical marijuana grower interested in La Salle land

Rachel Stella
Media Editor

A medical marijuana grower has caught the eye of La Salle, and the city is returning the interest.

The council on Tuesday voiced support (except for Alderman John "Doc" Lavieri, citing his work as a health professional, and Alderman T. "Boo" Herndon, who was absent) to start the process of considering whether to grant the request from Bloom Illinois, LLC for a special use permit to grow medical marijuana in La Salle.

Attorney Jim McPhedran emphasized that the motion to consider the request was introduced "for informational purposes" only and that "no substantive action" would be taken until there was further notice to the public.
