Harrisburg Approves Sale of Recreational Cannabis

HARRISBURG – The Harrisburg City Council has approved a resolution to allow the sale of adult use, recreational cannabis in Harrisburg. 

Earlier this year, Governor JB Pritzker signed a law that legalizes recreational cannabis statewide. That law allowed local municipalities to decide for themselves if they would allow the sale of recreational cannabis within their jurisdictions. 

After a public town hall meeting last week on the subject, the Harrisburg City Council made the decision Thursday night to allow the sale of adult use recreational cannabis by a vote of 4 to 1.
