HOUSE VOTE REMAINS – The Illinois state Senate approved a proposal on Wednesday to legalize recreational marijuana for adults 21 years and older beginning on January 1, 2020. “Illinois is poised to become the first state in the nation that put equity and criminal justice reform at the heart of its approach to legalizing cannabis, and I’m grateful that the Senate has taken this important step with a bipartisan vote,” Gov. Pritzker said in a statement. The measure needs to be approved by the House and signed by Pritzker before becoming law. (NPR Illinois)
