Adult-Use Cannabis

The Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act, effective Jan. 1, 2020, is a new Illinois law that legalizes recreational marijuana. The Village Board is in the process of collecting information to determine if the Village will allow or prohibit (“opt out”) the local retail sale/on-premises consumption of adult-use cannabis by businesses within Tinley Park.

Residents are encouraged to watch a 20-minute presentation regarding the new law, available below or on the Village’s YouTube pageSee the Adult-Use Cannabis Presentation for more information.
