State police receive extensive training on new recreational marijuana law

ILLINOIS (RFD) — While many are concerned about what will change with the legalization of Recreational Cannabis from December 31st to January 1st, the Illinois State Police want you to remember one thing about legal weed.

That’s Trooper Jason Wilson with the Illinois State Police. Illinois State Police Troopers have been undergoing extensive training to fully grasp the new recreational cannabis laws going into effect on January 1st. Among the takeaways from that training and something that the Illinois State Police want everyone to remember is that a DUI means Driving Under the Influence and it doesn’t just apply to alcohol.

Marijuana related fines and arrests will still be issued and made even after recreational marijuana becomes legal to use and possess on January 1st of 2020.
