Cannabis officially became legal in the state of Illinois on Jan. 1, 2020, adults over the age of 21 was able to legally purchase cannabis from licensed dispensaries. Sales start at 6 a.m. in some locations.
Illinois became the eleventh state in the U.S to legalize cannabis so far, and many more are expected to follow the trend in 2020, or maybe even on the federal level, after all, it is politics time again.
Unlike the medical marijuana program, just a driver’s license will do, but it has to be unaltered, and if the dispensary doesn't like it, they can turn it down.
Illinois residents can have:
• 5 grams of cannabis concentrate
• 500 milligrams of THC-infused products (edibles). A container of gummies, for example, contains 10 gummies at 10 mg each. So am entire container is 100 mg. The law allows you to purchase 5 of them.
