Illinois is one signature away from joining the 10 other states that have legalized recreational use of marijuana.
With a bipartisan vote of 66-47, the House approved a bill Friday that would allow residents age 21 and older to legally possess 30 grams of cannabis, 5 grams of cannabis concentrate or 500 milligrams of THC contained in a cannabis-infused product. Nonresidents could possess 15 grams of cannabis.
And passing with 66 votes, recreational cannabis heads to the Governor…
So what does the Governor still want ? Casino-expansion……Infrastructure bill ?
With a budget and capital plan still being sorted out — not to mention an expansive gambling measure that would add a Chicago casino, Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan has opted to extend adjournment of the spring legislative session until Sunday.
Today is the final day of the Illinois legislative session and a 1,581 budget bill was just filed. Members will be asked to vote on a bill that was negotiated by insiders behind closed doors. This terrible budget relies on the revenues from the 32% income tax hike. HELL NO!!!!!!
