Although the Danville City Council earlier approved a special use permit for a medicinal/adult-use cannabis dispensing facility, it will not be ready for the first day of Illinois’ new cannabis law. Phoenix Farms of Illinois LLC said earlier that its goal is to get the building along Lynch Road open by February 1st.
The company has been working on converting a building which formerly housed a Big Boy Restaurant and Border Café into a cannabis dispensing facility.
Not all city council members were in favor of issuing the Special Use Permit for the new dispensing facility on Lynch Road when the vote was taken in November. Council members Brenda Brown and R. J. Davis voted against issuing the permit. Alderwomen Sherry Pickering and Sharon McMahon were absent the night the vote was taken.
