For today's weed news we go to the great Prairie State.
It's official... The great state of Illinois is getting ready for the start of legal recreational Trees!
That's right people, starting January 1st of next year, so in about 5 weeks from now, adults in Illinois will no longer need to worry about getting arrested for having Cannabis because it will finally be legal for them to have it. They will also be allowed to purchase it legally and even use it in the privacy of their own homes.
Needless to say, there are a lot of people getting really excited about January. But there are also those in Illinois who are a little apprehensive.
One group of folks in Illinois that is unsure about exactly what to expect are the state's employers. From business owners to managers, and anyone else overseeing people on their payroll, employers will now have to deal with the fact that many of their workers could actually be legal potheads. And even though they will still be able to reprimand workers who seem to be under the influence, the thought of full-on recreational legalization still seems to be making many of them a little uneasy.
"Employers [will] continue to have the rights they have under the existing law to have a drug-free workplace, to have provisions in place in their businesses that ensure a safe workplace environment... Some employers may not be so aggressive and may say we don't care what you did 30 years ago and alter their drug testing policies," says Illinois Senator Jason Barickman.
In order to help explain exactly how the new laws are going to impact businesses, Heartland Community College even decided to host a workshop of sorts earlier this week focusing exactly on "Cannabis in the Workplace."
I'm sure that there are going to be some growing pains and that not everyone is going to like the new changes, but if you look at the other 10 states that have already crossed this hurdle, there really haven't been any outrageous cases of cannabis abuse in the workplace that I've heard of.
I feel like one thing that many normal people fail to realize is that the vast majority of people who are going to be consuming legal Cannabis already consume cannabis regardless of the law. There are probably a lot of stoners at a lot of jobs in Illinois already, and if they've been able to keep doing their job correctly until now, I feel like they'll probably be able to continue doing the same.
If you really think about it, it all just comes down to personal responsibility.
So all you Stoners out there in Illinois, make sure y'all don't wild out too much, especially if you got work in the morning and I feel like everything is going to be smooth sailing.
The world is changing people and we're the ones fucking changing it! Congratulations to the great state of Illinois and shoutouts to everybody that ever took action to help bring legal weed to your state.
And for now, that's what's up with legal weed coming to the great state of Illinois.
