(Springfield, IL) — Democratic lawmakers are proposing a bill to legalize marijuana. One senator wants to regulate and tax marijuana to help balance the state budget. The bill would legalize possessing nearly 30 grams of marijuana and would let retailers sell pot products. The same legislation has been introduced in the House. If the bill passes, people would have to be 21 or older to buy the drug and it would be illegal to drive under the influence.
