A hearing is set for 2 p.m. Friday, June 11, at Utica Village Hall on whether a CBD retailer improperly sold products to minors.
The CBD Joint, 723 S. Clark St., recently had its license suspended and now awaits a hearing on whether it misused its village-issued business license, said Utica Police Chief Rod Damron. Damron deferred additional comment until the Friday hearing.
A report was tendered to the La Salle County State’s Attorney’s Office. State’s Attorney Todd Martin confirmed the matter is under investigation.
When reached for comment, the CBD Joint deferred comment to their lawyer, Chicago attorney John Heiderscheidt, who issued the following statement: “I have been retained by CBD Joint to address the upcoming nuisance hearing. Unless or until further developments require it, we will have no public comments about the matter before the hearing takes place.”
The business was closed to the public Monday afternoon.
