Illinois: Marijuana Legalization Bills Introduced

Update: Lawmakers held their first hearing on the issue on Wednesday, April 19, at 10am.

Legislation has been introduced in the House and Senate to legalize the adult use of marijuana and to regulate the commercial cannabis market. 

The measures permits adults to legally possess personal or grow use quantities of marijuana in private.  Additional provisions establish a regulated market for the commercial production and retail sale of marijuana to adults.

A new poll by Southern Illinois University shows that sixty-six percent of Illinois voters support the legalization of recreational marijuana if it is taxed and regulated like alcohol.

Please urge your lawmakers to support this important legislative effort.
