Restricted Cannabis Zone Guidelines
An overview of the process creating a Restricted Cannabis Zone is below. For more detailed information, please see the Restricted Cannabis Zone Administrative Rules and the Illinois Compiled Statute, 410 ILCS 705/55-28.
OVERVIEW OF THE PROCESS CREATING A RESTRICTED CANNABIS ZONE
The Illinois Compiled Statute has been amended to allow a legal voter to propose to restrict home cultivation, or one or more types of cannabis business establishments which include cultivation centers, craft growers, processing organizations, dispensing organizations, and transporting organizations, or both home cultivation and one or more cannabis business establishments from operating in that precinct. To be eligible, the individual seeking a Petition from the City Clerk must be a legally registered voter in the precinct the individual seeks to restrict.
RESTRICTION PROCESS OVERVIEW
A legal voter seeking to circulate a Petition to restrict home cultivation and/or one or more types of cannabis business establishments in a precinct (“Legal Voter”) must utilize the following steps:
(1) The Legal Voter must first submit a Notice of Intent Form IN PERSON to the City Hall Office of the City Clerk, along with proof of residency in the precinct. The Notice of Intent Form can be obtained in the City Hall office of the City Clerk, or downloaded here.
Upon receipt of a completed Notice of Intent Form, the City Clerk will post the Notice of Intent Form online and will provide the Legal Voter with a Petition. The Legal Voter may begin circulating the Petition the day the Notice of Intent Form is posted online – but not before. The Legal Voter will have 90 calendar days to circulate the Petition
(2) The completed Petition must be returned to City Hall. For a Petition to be valid and legally sufficient it must comply with all of the requirements listed in the Petition Guidelines that are attached to the Petition. The Petition must be completed no more than 90 days after the City Clerk posts the Notice of Intent Form.
(3) Upon the Petition’s completion and return to the City Hall Office of the City Clerk, the City Clerk will post the Petition online at www.chicityclerk.com/cannabis for a 30 day comment period. During the comment period the public may submit comments regarding the Petition. Comments may be submitted in person to the City Hall Office of the City Clerk, or to [email protected], and will be available for public inspection at the City Hall Office of the City Clerk.
During the 30-day comment period, the City Clerk will also review the submitted Petition for legal sufficiency. At the end of the 30-day comment period, the City Clerk will publicly post online its determination of whether the Petition is accepted as legally sufficient or rejected as legally insufficient. If the Petition is rejected as legally insufficient, the reasons for such rejection will also be posted online
(4) If the City Clerk determines that the Petition is legally sufficient and valid, the City Clerk will officially notify the Alderman of the affected ward.
The Alderman may then review the Petition, along with other relevant factors about the precinct identified in the Petition, such as its geography, density and character, the prevalence of residentially zoned property, current licensed cannabis business establishments in the precinct, the current amount of home cultivation in the precinct, and the prevailing viewpoint with regard to establishing a Restricted Cannabis Zone within the precinct.
Following such review, the Alderman may introduce in City Council an Ordinance that seeks to establish a Restricted Cannabis Zone.
(5) If the Ordinance is passed, the restriction identified in the Petition will take effect on the effective date of the Ordinance.

Chicago Marijuana Clones and Seeds FAQ
Here you’ll find a list of the most frequently asked questions and answers about our seeds and clones.
Do Illinois Dispensaries Sell Seeds?
Yes, a number of dispensaries likely sell seeds in the state of Illinois.
We are currently finalizing partnerships with a few select dispensaries to provide pickup locations for our clones.
Please sign up for our waitlist to be notified first when we restock.
Can You Buy Clones In Illinois?
Yes, you can grow up to 5 full sized cannabis plants at a time if you are a registered medical marijuana patient.
If you are not a registered medical marijuana patient, there can be hefty fines for cultivating your own marijuana at home.
Please follow all laws and regulations so you do not put yourself at risk. We understand many can get a little excited and want to double the legal allowance of plants, but don’t put yourself at risk. With autoflower seeds you can get up to 6 harvests a year, so just be patient.
What’s Better: Clones or Seeds?
It depends, but cannabis seeds do have a number of advantages over clones. Seeds can produce more clones than a plant that has already been cloned. Plants grown from seed typically are more pest resistant than clones, but if your clones are produced in a highly sanitary environment, you don’t need to worry very much.
Clones, on the other hand, do allow you to skip the first few weeks of germination and growing, which means you can cut down on the time it takes to get to your harvest.
At Chicago Seeds & Clones, we feel that clones are the best option for new growers because during the period of germination, the plants are extremely sensitive and more likely to die.
If you go the seed route, we do have a germination guide that can help you maximize your chances of success from seeds.
How Long Does It Take To Get My Free Seeds or Clones?
Once you finish your order for a grow consultation, you’ll add your shipping address. Depending on your location, we may ship your seeds or clones.
We are currently finalizing details for partnerships with dispensaries in the area to serve as a pickup location so you can simply drive up and get your clones or seeds.
