House Approves Legal Weed

House Approves Legal Weed

SPRINGFIELD — There is approval for legal marijuana in Illinois.

The House okayed the measure 66-47 today. The bill will be signed by Governor JB Pritzker. After his signature is on the bill – starting January 1st of 2020 residents over 21 will be able to hold 30 grams or about 1 ounce of marijuana. The state will also be issuing licenses for grow operations, processors and retail stores with the state taxing the retail sales of the drug.

Republican David Welter of Morris supported it.

Home grow will be limited to those with medical marijuana cards and each person will only be allowed five plants. A onetime sticking point has moved forward with the bill. There will be a path towards expungement of past marijuana convictions through the Governor’s clemency process.
