History of Legal Marijuana in Illinois

Illinois began a pivot towards a more nuanced approach to cannabis with the passage of the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act in 2013. This marked a departure from strict prohibitionist policies and allowed individuals with qualifying medical conditions to access medical cannabis.

Seven years later, in 2020, Illinois became the 11th state to legalize adult-use cannabis. The Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act (CRTA) paved the way for a comprehensive framework governing the cultivation, distribution, and consumption of cannabis for adults aged 21 and older.

The CRTA established a system for expunging certain cannabis-related convictions and facilitated opportunities for individuals impacted by the War on Drugs to participate in the legal cannabis industry. Additionally, it outlined a regulatory structure for licensing cultivators, processors, dispensaries, and other cannabis-related businesses.

The implementation of adult-use cannabis legalization in Illinois presented numerous challenges. Nevertheless, the state witnessed a surge in economic activity, job creation, and tax revenue from the legal cannabis industry.
