Illinois becomes the 11th state to legalize marijuana

Illinois becomes the 11th state to legalize marijuana originally appeared on abcnews.go.com

Illinois has become the latest state to legalize marijuana.

The state's new Democratic governor signed a bill Tuesday legalizing the use of the drug.

Gov. JB Pritzker campaigned on the issue and the Illinois General Assembly passed a law legalizing and regulating production on May 31.

"As the first state in the nation to fully legalize adult-use cannabis through the legislative process, Illinois exemplifies the best of democracy: a bipartisan and deep commitment to better the lives of all of our people," Pritzker said in a statement after he signed the bill.

"Legalizing adult-use cannabis brings an important and overdue change to our state, and it’s the right thing to do. This legislation will clear the cannabis-related records of nonviolent offenders through an efficient combination of automatic expungement, gubernatorial pardon and individual court action," he said.


Illinois now joins 10 states and the District of Columbia in allowing the legal use of marijuana. Legalization will go into effect in Illinois on Jan. 1, 2020.

The National Conference of State Legislatures reports there are 13 other states where marijuana has been decriminalized. Small amounts intended for personal consumption can lead to a civil or local infraction in these states.

That was the tack used in New York, where the state legislature recently opted to decriminalize the drug and view possession of up to 2 ounces as a violation instead of a crime.

The legalization of marijuana in Illinois is seen by some as the latest in a string of progressive or left-leaning policies implemented by Pritzker.


BRAVO, Ilinois!!

Any step in any state towards legalization is to be applauded. Unfortunately, Illinois is broke as fuck. Sure hope the politicians don't try to balance the budget on the backs of marijuana users.

I'm conflicted on how positive the trend across the US really is.

No home grow without a medical card. I'm so tired of this money grab mentality. It's safe enough to legalize for recreation, but we still demand you pay us for the right to consume it?

Even worse all the while claiming preferential "opportunity" in the business for minorities as past restitution (I'm not a minority btw). Somehow I don't see the average minority previously affected by reefer madness opening a dispensary or cultivation facility. Maybe I'm naive.

I think Vermont is the only state that has "legalized" that allows home growing. I'm not at all sure this current "no grow" trend is a good thing at all.

Alaska
California
Colorado
District of Colombia

Before long they will tax your toilet paper (after each) instance and, further more... they will expect you to collect your "duty", weight it and, produce the required "tax" on said bodily function! Ya wanna wear tin hats?

That being said... STFU and do your thing

Better than a stick in the eye with scissors or a thorn branch. People will continue to grow underground, Switcher. $$$ has to be made and will let out-of-staters and those unable to grow to buy.
