Marijuana will be legal in the state of Illinois on Tuesday. Governor JB Pritzker will sign the law to make marijuana legal in the state this morning at a ceremony in Chicago. But people won't be able to have marijuana until after the first of the year.
The law would allow residents to purchase and possess up to 1 ounce (30 grams) of usable marijuana at a time. Nonresidents could have 15 grams. Up to five privately home-grown plants would be allowed for personal use, but only for patients approved for the existing medical marijuana program.
Ten states and the District of Columbia allow recreational use.
