CANNABIS IS NOW LEGAL IN ILLINOIS

The Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act provides for the controlled legalization of adult use cannabis in Illinois beginning January 1, 2020. What is Cannabis? Cannabis –also known as marijuana, pot, kush, and weed, among other names– is a psychoactive drug from the cannabis plant used for medical or recreational purposes. As with any mind-altering drug, the use of cannabis can negatively impact the health of adults and underage users.
