On Friday, the Illinois House passed legislation that could make it the 11th state, along with Washington D.C., to legalize recreational marijuana.
Illinois's House gave passage to the bill in a 66-47 vote. The state would become the second to legalize marijuana through legislation, as opposed to a ballot measure, if Governor J.B. Pritzker signs the bill into law.
The bill would allow residents to have up to 30 grams, and non-residents up to 15. It also allows the governor to pardon anyone with a conviction of possession under 30 grams on their record.
The bill's sponsors say it's expected to bring $57 million in revenue for the state in 2020, when the law would go into effect.
Pritzker said in a statement, "This will have a transformational impact on our state, creating opportunity in the communities that need it most and giving so many a second chance.”
Pritzker has publicly stated he would sign the bill into law if it reaches his desk.
