McLean County plans to use a portion of revenue from a new sales tax on recreational cannabis to pay for mental health services, based on a plan the County Board adopted Tuesday.

McLean County Board District 1 is one of the bigger districts geographically, home to around 16,000 people in towns such as Lexington, Hudson, Colfax, and Gridley.


A Colfax Republican plans to run for the McLean County Board in 2018.
