Secrecy of East St. Louis medical marijuana farm challenged

East St. Louis, IL ( KTRS ) Some residents are challenging city of East St. Louis’ decision to keep the proposed location of a medical marijuana growing operation secret.

A West Chicago comapny has been awarded the state’s sole license to grow medical marijuana in a five-county area that includes St. Clair and Madison counties.

But the city has declined to disclose the planned location of the indoor growing operation, citing security concerns.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that a St. Clair County judge issued a temporary restraining order last week blocking the East St. Louis City Council from declaring the cultivation center until it meets city zoning standards.

The judge’s order came hours before the council was scheduled to endorse the location.
