Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

If recreational cannabis is legalized in Illinois, how would the state spend the money from the revenue it generates?

Bradley University Assistant political science professor Megan Remmel says marijuana is a sensitive topic that has many people and political parties still divided.

“Certainly, recreational marijuana could be a piece of that portfolio that helps Illinois address its financial difficulty, but this is a long term struggle,” said Remmel.

Remmel says the state will need multiple fixes, and that the potential legalization of recreational cannabis is a minute solution to the state’s fiscal challenges.
