In under a
week, Illinois will allow recreational marijuana. But there are flaws.
the details you may have missed.
questions about weed require answers about the form in which it is consumed.
Question 1: How much can I
grams of weed in flower form is the maximum amount, which is usually between 30
and 50 joints. One gram is about the weight of a paper clip.
If you use
cannabis concentrate – think of medicated oil cartridges and medicated muscle
creams – then five grams is the maximum. If it is edible, like brownies or
gums, then 500 milligrams is the maximum you can have. Although it can vary a
lot, it’s usually 50 milligrams.
if you are not a resident of Illinois, you are only allowed to have half of
these amounts within state borders.
Question 2: How much will
I be taxed?
on the amount of THC, the chemical responsible for most of the psychological
effects of marijuana. In flower form, there will be a 10% tax. Edible products
are taxed at 20% but will be taxed at 25% if THC levels are above 35%.
states that have legalized recreational weeds, they are generally 30% to 50%
more expensive than illegal weeds.
Question 3: Where can I
tobacco retailers and weed clinics. At home, if you own a home. If you are a
tenant, you will need your landlord’s approval. If you are in a public housing
unit or if you use a public housing voucher, you cannot smoke marijuana there.
A few days
before the light goes green in Illinois, colleges may allow marijuana, which
could jeopardize the federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act.
