Chicago Closer To Having MMJ Dispensaries

Those who desired to become medical marijuana dispensaries in Chicago made their pitches to the Zoning Board of Appeals to set up in various neighborhoods, touting their security and financial plans.  The Board has approved 6 more dispensaries to open within city limits, while denying one near Wicker Park.

Along with hearing the pitches for dispensaries, the Board also heard its first pitch for a marijuana-growing facility, which was approved.  Six other proposed dispensaries on Friday's agenda were pushed off to later meetings.
