TALKS ON RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA LEGISLATION CONTINUE IN SPRINGFIELD. 

 

THOSE TESTIFYING AT A SENATE HEARING INCLUDE JAY SHATTUCK WITH THE ILLINOIS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, WHO SAYS EMPLOYERS HAVE SOME CONCERNS. HE OFFERS THESE SUGGESTIONS.

 

 

OTHERS FEAR KIDS WILL GET THEIR HANDS ON WEED…BUT SENATOR TOI (toy) HUTCHINSON OF OLYMPIA FIELDS SAYS THAT’S ALREADY HAPPENING.

 

 

POLICE SAY THEY CURRENTLY DON’T HAVE A WAY TO TEST DRIVERS FOR MARIJUANA AND SAY IT WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO ENFORCE THE FIVE HOMEGROWN PLANTS RULE. OTHERS RECOMMEND EXTENSIVE EDUCATION ABOUT THE RISKS OF MARIJUANA AND QUESTION NOT ALLOWING PEOPLE TO SMOKE IN PUBLIC.
