While local communities in Illinois move to raise the legal age to purchase tobacco products from 18 to 21, calling them a "gateway drug," State Senator Heather Steans (D-Chicago) has introduced SB 7 to legalize marijuana for recreational use in Illinois. Marijuana is an illegal controlled substance WELL KNOWN to be a "gateway drug" which has become increasingly addictive over the years.
Lawmakers see this as a tax windfall. but taxing marijuana will only drive the cost up, causing the black market to thrive by selling it cheaper, JUST LIKE COLORADO.
Their misguided attempts will put more impaired workers in the workplace, more impaired drivers on our roads and more drugs into the hands of children.
