LAWMAKERS HOPE POT CAN SOLVE BUDGET CRISIS

Two #Illinois state lawmakers last week introduced legislation that would allow residents 21 and older to possess, grow or buy up to an ounce of marijuana, and license businesses to sell marijuana products subject to regulation. The lawmakers say the law would help fill Illinois’ budget deficit with $350 to $700 million in new tax revenue. Illinois would be the first state in the Midwest to legalize the drug.
