Witness Slips Sought Against Bill to Legalized Marijuana

From the Illinois Famioy Institute:

You can make your opposition to legalizing “hopped-up super weed”  known by filing a witness slip.

SB 7 will commercialize and legalize high potency marijuana in Illinois. The proponents of the 533-page bill are calling it “equity” legislation.

SB 7 will waive 50% of licensing fees; allow ownership of up to 10 dispensaries; provide grants or interest-free loans for licenses and dispensaries to individuals who have been “disproportionately impacted” (i.e minority communities) or have been “arrested for, convicted of” selling or possessing marijuana.  What is noteworthy is the fact that the vast majority of incarcerated inmates whose records show possession or possession with the intent to sell, have plea-bargained down from a more serious offense.

Under SB 7, these people will be given special incentives to sell drugs with the help of the government!

Please CLICK HEREto file a witness slip: SB 7 will be heard in the Senate Executive Committee on Wednesday, May 15th at 11:00 am.

  1. The only people worried about legal marijuana are those that profit off ruining the lives of people caught with a joint…aka…The courthouse cronies(lawyers, judges, bail-bondsmen, jail staff, etc).

    You can’t have alcohol legal, and somehow find marijuana to be a larger threat.

  2. Illinois does not have bailbondsmen.

    I believe that diusgraced system was abolished in the late 1960’s.

  3. Hey, TheVirginian/anonymous coward- your presrcipition opioid addiction is showing.

    How about you Make America Great Again by dying swiftly from your diverticulitis, OK?

    Social Security can’t handle too many bloated Trump junkies slowly rotting away in shitty nursing homes, while immigrant orderlies yank on your catheter for amusement purposes…

    “hopped up super weed”- how very 1967.

    About as topical as Walrus Nygren bringing up “the age of Aquarius” in his campaign literature.

    Speaking of Nygren- has he managed to sell both his homes?

    Seems like he’d contact law enforcement if he was the target of extortion plots, wouldn’t he?

  4. What a sick twisted mind you have John. You seem very determined to end up in Hell.

  6. Republicans: Wanting smaller government, while at the same time perfectly accepting of locking someone in a cage for smoking a plant.

  7. Lovass is a real sickoid.

    Are you Franks?

    Or one of his toadies paid to blog here like tic-toc fool or Dent-blah?

    Did everybody forget grass is a gateway drug?

    Why legalize it?

    So people like Lovaas can prance about high all the time legally?

  8. One of the first feel good gateway drugs your parents give you and will kill you if misused is Aspirin.

    “Beyond field sobriety testing, Connolly said there’s no way to accurately test for levels of impairment, which creates issues for law enforcement.”

    “The inability for law enforcement to detect marijuana intoxication in a breathalyzer-type way has left some lawmakers saying they won’t support legalizing recreational cannabis.”

    “Marijuana remains a Schedule 1 controlled substance at the federal level.”
