West Dundee was among the communities permitting the sale of marijuana as Illinois this week became the 11th state to legalize adult use of recreational cannabis, according to a tally published by the Daily Herald.

So far, 43 communities in the Chicago suburbs allow such sales, while 46 communities do not and seven local governments are still studying the idea or remain uncertain about their plans, the Daily Herald reported.

Under a new law that took effect on Wednesday, Illinois residents 21 or older can have up to 30 grams of cannabis in their possession, according to the advocacy group NORML. The law also gives local governments the power to allow or ban such sales.

The majority of the suburbs are looking at restricting marijuana sales to shops in certain areas or requiring the merchant to obtain a special use permit, according to the Daily Herald report.

Municipalities can also put in place a 3 percent tax on marijuana sales to generate revenues.
