Illinois Is Getting Close to Legalizing Recreational Pot
Recreational marijuana enthusiasts, your time is coming.
WQAD reports that a bill to legalize recreational weed in Illinois could be filed by next week. The topic is rumored to be one of the first issues lawmakers will discuss when they're back in session Monday.
Although medical marijuana was legalized in 2013 (and decriminalization of small amounts took place in 2016), Illinois governor JB Pritzker is ready to legalize across the board. Pritzker has repeatedly said he will sign the bill into law.
