If you have an opinion on whether Godfrey should allow medical marijuana grow operations to locate in the village, you may want to attend tonight’s Public Safety Committee Meeting.  The topic will be one of the first things discussed when the meeting begins at 6pm at Village Hall. 

There is a feeling within the village that they should get ahead of the issue and establish some guidelines fairly quickly.  Local realtor Rick Lauschke says getting a plan in place for when the state finally issues its permits will be of benefit to Godfrey or any other community that hosts the facilities.

State officials are still trying to pin down the rules for the new medical marijuana program and licenses won’t be issued to sick people until this fall.
