  1. Bit I’m here for the weekend , can we do it today ?

  2. Sometimes I’m proud of my state.

  3. Dis gonna be good

  4. *Cries in Texan*

  5. It’s wonderful to see that they’re going about this the right way. Giving those from heavily persecuted communities a leg up with the loan program is absolutely deserved, and expunging prior offences is a necessity. There are people still locked in cages for pot even in states where it’s been legalized, which is total bullshit.

    A state government recognizing that the criminalization of cannabis was grossly unjust and then taking steps to assist those that were most impacted is honestly refreshing and gives me some faith in humanity. I feel like many legal states only really cared about profit, and I hope more take this approach.

  6. Cool, do I get my bullshit charge dropped now?

  7. As a WI resident it’ll be nice to have a legal neighbor.

  8. Important line:

    > **New dispensaries would licensed by May 1, with processors, craft growers and transporters being licensed by July 1.**

  9. This is a great bill & is already being backed by a lot of diverse organizations, including ACLU – Illinois. Chicago / Illinois activists were very loud on the need for social equity and programs/distribution policies that helped reverse the harm caused by the War on Drugs.

  10. Can indiana be next, please?

    I know it’s highly unlikely, but one can hope.

  11. Well Done Illinois!

    Sincerely, Canada

  12. Wtf, the year after I move away. Hope Ohio’s next 😛
