Also please explain what benefits this brings to quincy as a whole not just to the downtown. Those people renting those apartments aren't going to move quincy il just because there are new apartments available on 3rd & Maine those people already live here shop here and pay sales taxes here so the city gains nothing from them. The retail space MIGHT bring a couple of jobs and incremental sales…

Can somebody tell me what is wrong with grass??? We had a vacant eyesore there for 30 years. Provided they keep it mowed, there is nothing wrong with a little open space

Illinois investors jump into marijuana business

3 months, 2 weeks ago from the Associated Press

Implementation of the Illinois law is still months away

From from the Associated Press:

Investors around Illinois are jockeying for positions in the marijuana business as they wait for the state's new medical marijuana law to kick in. And some of them are politically connected.

According to the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises ( http://bit.ly/TYXDPd ), Sam Borek has reserved at least three-dozen marijuana-related business names. Borek was a college roommate of the legislator who sponsored the law, Democratic state Rep. Lou Lang of Skokie.

Those companies have names like Illinois Medical Marijuana Sales Inc., Illinois Cannabis Realty Inc. and Cannabis Medical Centers of Illinois Inc.

And then there's David Rosen of Chicago. He was Gov. Pat Quinn's chief fundraiser in 2010 and also raised money for Hillary Rodham Clinton and Al Gore.

Rosen has filed paperwork to open a medical marijuana business in Nevada called Waveseer. But he's registered that business name in Illinois, too. Rosen's investors, according to state records from Nevada, include a number of Quinn donors.

But Borek says he has already run into a potential hurdle.

"We've got some checks to invest from investors and we can't deposit them," he said.

That's because banks have so far turned him down when he tried to open checking accounts. He said the banks are worried about possible penalties under federal law if they do business with marijuana growers and sellers.

He believes he might be able to remedy the problem by removing the word "marijuana" from business names.
