Illinois Legalizes Weed, will Erase 700K Convictions, Use $57 Million for Debt

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.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
