Update: Illinois State Senate passes Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act – recreational marijuana in Illinois is one step closer

Just in case you didn’t catch it in the Chicago Sun-Times, the Springfield Journal-Register, or the Chicago Tribune, or weren’t following it all day over at the stellar Capitol Fax, the State Senate passed the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act yesterday by a vote of 38-17. You can see here that House sponsors have piled on. This should get done this week and then on to the Governor for signature. Pursuant to Section 999-99 of the bill, the Act will become effective upon becoming law.

Ashley Brandt

Hi there! I’m happy you’re here. My name is Ashley Brandt and I’m an attorney in Chicago representing clients in the Food and Beverage, Advertising, Media, and Real Estate industries. A while back I kept getting calls and questions from industry professionals and attorneys looking for advice and information on a fun and unique area of law that I’m lucky enough to practice in. These calls represented a serious lack of, and need for, some answers, news, and information on the legal aspects of marketing and media. I've got this deep seeded belief that information should be readily available and that the greatest benefit from the information age is open access to knowledge... so ... this blog seemed like the best way to accomplish that. I enjoy being an attorney and it’s given me some amazing opportunities, wonderful experiences, and an appreciation and love for this work. I live in Chicago and work at an exceptional law firm, Goldstein & McClintock, with some truly brilliant people. Feel free to contact me at any time with any issues, comments, concerns… frankly, after reading this far, I hope you take the time to at least let me know what you think about the blog and how I can make it a better resource.
