    Illinois legislature passes recreational cannabis bill

    Illinois House approves marijuana legalization bill backed by Gov. J.B. Pritzker - Chicago Tribune

    Pritzker will sign it.

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

    The first state to legalize recreational dispensaries via the legislature.
    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.

    Awesome! We had a big victory here in AZ, they have been trying to gut our medical MJ laws for years, every time they have tried to sue, they get their asses kicked. So the last attempt was to arrest people with MJ cards using extracts. They claimed extracts weren't covered in the bill we passed. The AZ SC knocked it down.

    Wow.

    This bill did make some concessions to law enforcement.

    The big concession was making home growing illegal except for medical card holders.

    Seems reasonable to me.

    Hmm... celebrating the creation of a new "sin" tax as granting the sheeple more freedom.

    Legalizing marijuana is expected to generate $57 million in general revenue in the coming budget year and $30 million for a cannabis business development fund. That’s far less than the $170 million Pritzker projected in his spending plan, but budget negotiators have said they aren’t counting on any of that revenue.

    After paying for regulatory expenses and costs related to the expungement process, marijuana revenue would be divided among a number of areas. The largest share, 35%, would go into the state’s general fund; 25% would go to community grants; 20% to mental health and substance abuse programs; 10% to pay down the state’s backlog of unpaid bills; 8% to support law enforcement; and 2% for public education.

    Drunks are psycho and a danger. Potheads are like coffee addicts in reverse.

    I think it's silly people can't grow their own. Up here we can grow up to four plants per household. It's a reasonable compromise - four plants ought to get you through the year, if you're decent at it. If you can grow grapes to make wine, you should be able to grow dope. Folks may balk at that, until you consider that the type of grapes you grow to make wine are really only good for making wine...you wouldn't want to eat them. So, yeah, it really is the same thing.

    What are you worried about? Getting to the convenience store and not finding any Doritos?

    Obviously you know nothing about cannabis.
