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.
