A group that favors legalization of marijuana says pending Illinois legislation to allow use of the drug for medicinal purposes has plenty of restrictions.
But Dan Linn with the group NORML also hopes that medical marijuana will open the door for more widespread and less restrictive use of the drug.
That’s exactly the fear of opponents of the bill, who say allowing the use of pot for any reason will increase its recreational use, especially among teens.
The latest medical marijuana bill cleared an Illinois House committee last week.
Linn appeared on 970 WMAY's Saturday Session with Bishop. Hear that conversation at this link.
