Illinois becomes the First State to Legislatively Legalize Cannabis!
Although technically Illinois is the 11th state to pass an adult-use cannabis law, we are the 1st state to do so without ballot referendum and with social equity provisions for disproportionately impacted residents included.
Chicago NORML had a front row seat at the historic bill signing and even got a shout-out from the podium!
Chicago NORML Collaborates with CannaHealth Digital Magazine to produce Chicago’s First Chicago Cannabis Health & Wellness Fair on the City’s South side!
