May 16, 2019 2:18PM CDT
Talks continue in Springfield about a bill that would legalize the possession and sale of recreational marijuana in Illinois. State Senator Jason Barickman suggested yesterday that Governor Pritzker issue a mass pardon on all low-level marijuana convictions to relieve legal concerns associated with the measure. The governor is open to discussing changes to the bill before the legislation is voted on by the state Senate and House.
