In 2020, Illinois joins a growing list of states that have made Recreational Cannabis legal.  Our legislators chose to use legislation which allowed them to direct the process of legalization.  Numerous limits are contained in the new law which will impact our community.  Join a former state legislator, a Skokie Police officer, and the JCFS Chicago Addiction Specialist as we clarify the new Recreational Cannabis Law, how it came to be, and what changes it will bring in law enforcement and in clinical work.
