Elgin residents wondering if and when the city will get a cannabis dispensary will get an answer this spring.

This week, city council members unanimously approved the city’s first cannabis business. The facility is a craft grow operation in the Elgin Industrial Park off the southeast corner of McLean Boulevard and Big Timber Road. It will sell cannabis to dispensaries, not retail customers.

The grow operation can’t open a dispensary in the same location under city law.

That sparked questions from council members who said they get frequent questions from constituents about when the city will get a dispensary. City officials modified zoning rules for the downtown in the fall of 2020, with hopes of bringing a dispensary to the downtown.

But more than a dozen lawsuits about who received dispensary licenses in the state lottery brought Elgin’s push to a halt. Only facilities with a medical cannabis license moved forward with retail operations.

Elgin Community Development Director Marc Mylott told council members it doesn’t matter how inviting the city makes its zoning to potential dispensaries if the business economics are bad.

Empire Cannabis Clubs in Chelsea is everything you’d imagine a marijuana dispensary to be. There are glass display cases with a variety of marijuana buds, known as flower, and shelves full of edibles, pre-rolled joints, vape cartridges and other THC products — all in a sleek retail setting. 

On its website, Empire proclaims itself the city’s first cannabis dispensary. But owners of the small business say they’re not actually selling cannabis, technically speaking — they’re selling club memberships.

“If you intend to buy any THC products, you will need to be a member of the club, either daily or monthly,” says Lenore Elfand, Empire’s co-owner. The club offers a daily pass for $15 and a monthly membership for $35 a month.

Want to feel more rested during the day? Here are some things to keep in mind when using cannabis to help you clock in your eight hours.

Marijuana and sleep are great partners. While it takes some time to crack the code, once you do it, you’ll be having the most restful nights of your life. Just ask any friend who regularly smokes weed or that person who fell asleep in the middle of a party because the weed they smoked was a bit too relaxing.

Anecdotal evidence from people who have trouble sleeping shows how effective cannabis can be, helping users feel relaxed and allowing them to achieve hours of uninterrupted rest. Despite marijuana’s powerful sleep-inducing effects, it’s important to understand that the relationship between cannabis and sleep isn’t as clear-cut as so many believe it is. There are studies that have shown that prolonged marijuana use, or marijuana abuse, can interrupt people’s sleep habits and deteriorate them.
