Next month we'll have recreational 'jazz cabbage' sales in Illinois.

I illegally smoked the stuff from high school until my late 30's, but backed away due to scarcity* and the possibility of hefty penalties being imposed, if caught.
*Until she moved away, I used to get weed from my neighbor, who is a mental health counselor.

I'm pleased that so many Illinoisans will have their cannabis convictions expunged, as I'm certain it's kept many folks from employment/career advancement.
It will be a real sea change for me to be able to walk into a dispensary and purchase legal weed.

Hoping Santa will bring me some fun paraphernalia this year.

1. You'll be a kid in a candy store

We have five dispensaries in our town. What a difference from the days of contraband.

3. Distribution will be super-tight initially, as

the MMJ dispensaries will be the only game in town until other licenses are approved over the summer.
Hopefully we'll get to the point where you can get weed at gas stations and other outlets.

7. Don't count on your last sentence.

Outlets have to have security guards among other tight restrictions.

9. Colorado opened their first Gas and Grass in 2015, so I'm hopeful

it will become so widespread that fear of robbery will be decreased.

5. I'm in my 50s, so it's going to be a major change, although you can only smoke it in your home.

Not sure about all of the dabbing and whatnot.
I'll probably stick with flower for a while, maybe some hash.
I may be open to the vape pen thing, but will need to seek out more information on that aspect.

17. I don't think any have been approved yet, but there will be cannabis lounges

Where you can smoke socially.

I think you’re fine to check out vape pens, it is the black market ones that are causing trouble, dabbing is a little more involved and requires some additional equipment.

Enjoy! We’re living in the future!

6. Cheeba! Haven't heard that one in a long while.

Reminds me of this Tone Loc tune.

12. That's great...

I don't think I've ever heard it before. Given how they have been named I think a marijuana dispensary called Joke Flower Wellness would sweep the market.

8. Having legalization and retail sales in Illinois

is a big deal. When you think of how many states adjoin IL, you realize that a lot of people will be able to get cannabis and take it back to their home states. We saw that with the west coast, Washington legalized weed, then Oregon did (why give up the tax revenue to WA?) then California did.

Sure, you're going to have holdouts in the deep South, and probably Utah, but this is a big leap forward for legalization. Eventually the SCOTUS will be called on to make legalization national, especially after Federal law is changed to remove marijuana from the list of dangerous drugs, and even Kavanaugh will OK it.

13. House bill 3884

The house already passed its bill to remove pot from the list of dangerous drugs.

Halfway there!

16. The other half

will be the difficult part. Maybe if we give some sort of advantage to Kentucky cannabis farmers, Moscow Mitch won't stand in the way.

14. Yeah, that's going to be huge.

My sister in law has a relative who was busted in Nebraska, bringing weed back from Colorado to Indiana. He had to return to Nebraska for court and ultimately lost his teaching job.

Illinois shares borders with Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Kentucky, Indiana and Michigan (water border).
The only one of these states that has recreational weed is Michigan (just became legal today!), and I'm fairly certain the only dispensaries are on the East side of the State in Ann Arbor.
I suspect weed tourism will become a big deal.

19. Ann Arbor is open for pot tourism!

We In Washtenaw County voted 67 pct yes on recreational.

We are the most liberal city in MI.

👍

18. Today is the first day of recreational sales in Michigan.

Dispensaries in Ann Arbor, Evart and Morenci have started recreational sales.
Morenci is right next to the Ohio border.
