Illinois Next to Legalize Cannabis?

The Illinois Legislature is considering a proposal to legalize cannabis for adults 21 and over. In a hearing last week, law enforcement and drug policy experts in the state had their say on the issue.


Illinois approved medical marijuana back in 2014. 29 states and the District of Columbia have all passed laws legalizing cannabis in some form over the years. The plan to legalize marijuana for recreational use would include legitimate retailers similar to the already existing medical marijuana dispensaries in the state. Legalizing would allow the state to regulate a product that is already widely used within Illinois.


Those opposed to recreational legalization retorted with claims that legalizing cannabis would lead to wider use, especially among teenagers. However, as we've seen, teen cannabis use is actually in decline.


Whether or not Illinois will legalize remains to be seen but these debates demonstrate that even with studies proving otherwise, certain interests are still using de-bunked arguments in an attempt to prove their point.
