    The worry is that you’ll feed the black/gray market, which is definitely a thing in other states.

    It’s similar to the concept that it’s illegal to distill alcohol.

    Realistically, if you’re dying to do it, you can jump through some hoops and get a medical card.

    Or, you can take the risk of getting caught and paying a $200 fine for $300 worth of grow.

    It’s a minor concession.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Seems reasonable to me.
    Please growing is one of the things I'm looking forward to with legalization.

    It will be fun not having to have a closet lined with tin foil a light and a small fan, like I did when I was young...

    maybe it will put pressure on my backwards red state to have a pot legal state next to it.

    Yes, it’s definitely illegal...

    I wouldn’t count on it. But just drive over the border- we’ll hook you up.

    my guess is that eventually, they'll get tired of spending four times as much on enforcement while losing out on the tons of money Illinois makes from this. they'll want that money more than their reefer madness eventually.

    The tax revenue numbers are coming in. Resistance will be brief and futile.

    The vote in Florida is rather a lock, 2020. We're a tourist state. Most of our money comes from alcohol sales, and cannabis tax revenue has exceeded that. Miami-Dade 'bout ta get rich.

    Pritzker will sign it.

    Looks like legal marijuana will be available by Jan 1st.

    The first state to legalize recreational dispensaries via the legislature.
    Legalizing debilitating mind-altering drugs is a natural for godless democrats desiring to legalize every destructive sinful pleasure known to man.
