'Equity-Centric' Bill to Legalize Recreational Marijuana Introduced by Illinois Dems

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

Illinois's Democratic governor and state lawmakers unveiled legislation over the weekend to legalize recreational marijuana for residents aged 21 and older, expunge roughly 800,000 drug convictions, and establish a $20 million low-interest loan program to help "social equity applicants" enter the licensed cannabis industry.
