Greenville Not Selected For Medical Marijuana Cultivation Site

Mike Donnewald addresses the audience at a previous City Council meeting regarding the proposed medical marijuana cultivation facility.

Governor Bruce Rauner has announced the locations of many of the medical marijuana cultivation and dispensaries that will be licensed by the state and a cultivation site will not be located in the Wolf Industrial Park in Greenville.

RFP, LLC or Relief From Pain, LLC had submitted an application for the cultivation facility that will be built in the 11th Illinois State Police District. Each ISP district will have a cultivation center. Progressive Treatment Solutions, LLC was awarded the cultivation center for District 11, which includes parts or all of Bond, Clinton, Madison, Monroe and St. Clair Counties.

The plan for the facility in Greenville would have meant new construction of the facility and multiple new jobs in Greenville.

More information on the selection process and the announcement of further facilities in other parts of the state is expected soon.
