0914a034xRSPRINGFIELD – State Senator Julie Morrison (D-Deerfield) issued the following statement this evening after voting in support of House Bill 1438, which would create a well-regulated, legal cannabis market in Illinois.

“Legalizing adult-use cannabis will help eliminate the illicit market for drug sales while ensuring the entire process is regulated and taxed like any other sale. This legislation protects the rights of municipalities who do not wish to have cannabis dispensaries operating in their community, includes protections for employers to maintain zero-tolerance work policies and keeps cannabis out of the hands of individuals under the age of 21.

“I would like to thank the many constituents for contacting me throughout the last few weeks and months as this proposal has evolved and developed this spring.”
