Godfrey Mayor Mike McCormick is pulling for a couple of local projects to get the green light from the state. Those projects are medical marijuana grow facilities proposed in Wood River and Jersey County. At one time there was talk of an investor wanting to locate in Godfrey, but that idea was strongly opposed by many in the community.
McCormick tells The Big Z he is concerned of the potential message the strong opinions from those who spoke against the issue may have sent.

In the end, McCormick called the uproar “a lot about nothing” as the location was not suited for that purpose, as the old White’s Greenhouse was is situated too close to residences for that purpose.
