Will Illinois Be The Next State To Legalize Marijuana?

Will Illinois be the next state to legalize marijuana? A proposed primary ballot referendum seems to indicate that there is a distinct possibility that it will be. And since Illinois already has a medical marijuana program and has decriminalized cannabis, the possibility isn’t so far-fetched.

The Pot Proposal

In March, voters in Cook County, Illinois might see a referendum on their primary election ballots. County Commissioners John Fritchey and Luis Arroyo have expressed interest in the possibility of legalized recreational weed. But they’re not just interested in legalizing cannabis in Cook County. They want to legalize it throughout the entire state of Illinois.

In a statement to CBS Chicago, Commissioner Fritchey said that the legalization of recreational cannabis would rake in an estimated $500 million for the state of Illinois in tax revenue. That sounds about right. After all, the first month of recreational weed sales in Nevada earned about $3.7 million in tax revenue. The numbers speak for themselves. In Colorado and Oregon, taxes from recreational cannabis sales are substantial as well. And the revenue from those taxes is going toward programs that improve the lives of state residents.

Opioid commission's anti-marijuana argument stirs anger

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

(CNN)New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, head of the presidential commission on opioids, warned of the dangers of marijuana in a letter to President Donald Trump earlier this month about the panel's findings, saying the current push for marijuana legalization could further fuel the opioid epidemic.

"There is a lack of sophisticated outcome data on dose, potency, and abuse potential for marijuana. This mirrors the lack of data in the 1990s and early 2000s when opioid prescribing multiplied across health care settings and led to the current epidemic of abuse, misuse and addiction," Christie wrote in the letter, which was released with the commission's final report.


DEA Plans To Grow Nearly 1,000 Pounds Of Weed Next Year

Despite being an administration that has worked hard to prevent others from growing weed, the DEA plans to grow nearly 1,000 pounds of weed next year. They’re setting a heavy quota for their federally-licensed cannabis researchers and growers.

The DEA Drug Quota

According to a Federal Register filing by the DEA, the exact amount that the agency expects from researchers is 443,680 grams of cannabis, which equals a little more than 978 pounds of weed. On top of the thousand pounds, the DEA will allow 384,460 grams of THC to be produced for scientific research in 2018.

The DEA’s yearly order actually consists of much more than just weed.

They apparently have quotas for 92,120 grams of cocaine, 40 grams of LSD, 45 grams of heroin, 30 grams of psilocybin, 25 grams of DMT and more. The DEA’s got a guy for just about anything you need for a wild night.
