The Winnetka Village Council has directed Village Attorney Peter Friedman to prepare an ordinance prohibiting recreational marijuana businesses in the village.

The decision came on Tuesday, Sept. 17, following a public hearing and a short discussion by trustees.

Prefacing the public hearing was a presentation by Director of Community Development David Schoon during which he explained the new recreational marijuana law that was passed during the spring session of the state legislature and will take effect on Jan. 1.
