Illinois Governor To Sign Recreational Marijuana Bill

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.
