Lawmakers Propose Legalizing Recreational Marijuana In Illinois
You could fire up a joint legally if two new bills introduced by two Chicago Democrats gets passed. The two bills would allow adults over 21 and to possess, grow, and purchase a limited amount of marijuana. The state would license and regulate businesses growing, processing, testing and selling cannabis to adults, and ant tax it, too, at a rate of $50 per ounce at the whole sale level. You’ll get hit with a 6.25 percent sales tax.
