Here's why marijuana will eventually be legal in Illinois
Regardless of how you feel personally about recreational marijuana, the majority of Illinoisans and the vast majority of Chicagoans support marijuana legalization. According to a recent poll from a public policy institute at Southern Illinois University, 66 percent of voters in the state support recreational marijuana, while 74 percent of Chicagoans are in favor of legalization. Citing these and other statistics, state lawmakers and marijuana reform advocates held a press conference in Chicago on Wednesday to unveil a new approach to making pot legal in the Land of Lincoln.
Sen. Heather Steans and Rep. Kelly Cassidy, both of Chicago, were joined by figures from various marijuana advocacy groups to lay out how they plan to grow bipartisan support of pending legislation that would make it legal for adults to possess, purchase and grow small amounts of marijuana. Through public hearings, mobilizing support and sound policy, the message on Wednesday was that it's only a matter of time until grass gets a pass.
God Bud (Indica)
The memorably-named God Bud rose from underground fame in Canada's medical pot community to international acclaim when BC Bud Depot debuted it as a commercial strain in 2004. The heavy yields and strong effect have made BC God Bud an indica worthy of praise. BC God Bud delivers a musky, tropical flavor with herbal edges and hints of lavender, berry, and pine. The high is well balanced, a slight creeper with long-lasting effects, starting with a calm, pleasant feeling and increasing to a more surreal, nearly hallucinogenic buzz.

Marijuana Seizures Surge in Hong Kong
You can make an argument for Hong Kong, the former British colony turned international banking and cultural center, as the most liberal place in China.
With that statement, you would also likely offend some people, in both mainland China and in Hong Kong: While the city is officially part of China under the “one country, two systems” situation, Hong Kong has its own autonomous government, semi-democratic politics and capitalist economy and independent currency. And as you may have heard, there are an awful lot of people in Hong Kong who don’t take kindly to direction from Beijing.
But one thing Hong Kong has in common with the mainland is a total prohibition of drugs.
Some would argue it’s a cultural thing, as “recreational” drugs are what led to the Chinese having to hand over Hong Kong Island to the British in the first place. Nevertheless, the people of Hong Kong are like anyone anywhere else: They like to get high, and there are an increasing amount of opportunistic cannabis cultivators willing to risk life imprisonment to satiate that need.
