May 30, 2019 7:31AM CDT
- The recreational use of marijuana is on the fast track to becoming legal in Illinois.
- In a 38-17 vote Wednesday evening, the Illinois Senate approved a bill that seeks to make marijuana legal for adults 21 and older. The vote came only hours after it was approved by the state’s Senate Executive Committee. The legislation now heads to the House.
- If the bill becomes law, Illinois will become the 11th U.S. state to allow recreational use of weed.
- Should the federal government legalize marijuana to just get it over with? Are you for or against it?
