decriminalize marijuana illinois

ILLINOIS—Yes, there are a couple of bills right now in the Illinois legislature set to decriminalize marijuana…and they’ve passed the House Restorative Justice Committee.

As outlined in this link, House Bills 4299 and 5708 would reduce possession of marijuana to nothing more than a traffic citation, as opposed to a misdemeanor.

As jointblog cites:

House Bill 4299 would make the possession of up to 30 grams of cannabis a simply $100 ticket, rather than an arrestable misdemeanor as it currently stands. In addition, the measure would remove criminal penalties – also making it an $100 ticket – for manufacturing or delivering up to 10 grams of cannabis, and for possessing up to 5 cannabis plants. It would also reduce the charge from a felony, to a misdemeanor, for the possession of between 5 and 20 plants, or between 30 to 500 grams.

And here:

Under House Bill 5708, the possession of up to 30 grams of cannabis would be decriminalized, reduced to an $100 ticket, as with House Bill 4299. Unlike that bill, House Bill 5708 would have no effect on penalties regarding manufacturing or delivering cannabis.

Please show your support for these bills by contacting your legislator. It’s time to un-crowd the prisons, provide relief for those suffering pain that only cannabidiols can provide, and provide life-saving hemp oil for those suffering cancer, seizures, and other disorders that apparently God himself developed this plant to treat.
