(KMOV.com) – Residents said they are urging the State of Illinois to not allow a medical marijuana dispensary to open near a high school.

Some residents want the state to reject the application of a plan submitted by Nature’s Care, a company that wants to open a medical marijuana dispensary in a business park in Glen Carbon. If approved, the plan would call for the dispensary to open only 1100 feet from Edwardsville High School.

Even though the current plan is legal, some residents believe the dispensary would still be too close to the school. The state is expected to rule on the application in December.
