On Tuesday, Illinois became the 11th state in the U.S. to legalize the recreational use of marijuana by adults.
Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signed a bill into law legalizing the usage and sales for people over the age of 21 if they purchase the product from a license dispensary.
The law will take effect on January 1.
As a state, Illinois is projected to make over $57 million in tax and fee revenue for the 2020 fiscal year.
The law will also erase up to 700,000 marijuana-related convictions for people convicted for marijuana-related crimes in the state, which Governor Pritzker applauded at the bill-signing event.
