Pot Sales Referendum On March Ballot:
Naperville voters will see a referendum question about recreational marijuana sales on the March 17, 2020 ballot. Naperville City Council voted 5-4 last night to put the non-binding referendum on whether marijuana should be sold in Naperville on the primary ballot. Some council members and public speakers felt the November presidential election would be a better date, as voter turnouts are expected to be higher. However others said nothing is stopping voters from going to the polls in March and holding the referendum later is just kicking the can down the road. Council also voted to use the wording of the question proposed by city staff, “Shall the City of Naperville, in light of state legislation legalizing the possession, consumption, and sale of recreational adult use cannabis, allow the sale of recreational adult use cannabis within its jurisdiction?”
