ST. CLAIR COUNTY, Ill. (KMOX) – The St. Clair County Board meets tonight to discuss a potential marijuana farm in the county.

It would only be able to be used for medicinal purposes, and two weeks ago, the Zoning Board gave it approval.

Now, it heads before the county board.

The proposed center is called “Nature’s Cure,” and it would grow the plants in an enclosed, locked facility in Marissa, south of Belleville.

If the permit does get through the board, it will also need state approval.
