People in the know have long thought that Illinois is on the path toward legalization. But so far, no luck. Toward the end of 2017, Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner made clear that he opposes legalization.
Despite this, there is growing popular support for making weed legal. On top of that, a judge in Illinois started the year off by expanding the list of conditions that qualify for medical marijuana.
With that change setting the tone, there’s still a chance that legalization could find its way onto the ballot this year. Illinois is definitely one of the states could pass marijuana laws this year.
