IL lawmakers to create task force to help legalize recreational use of marijuana

State and local lawmakers will call on the Illinois General Assembly Monday to create a task force to help legalize marijuana for recreational use.

Lawmakers want the task force to research, develop and propose legislation to legalize and regulate marijuana.

They also see it as a source of revenue and want to impose taxes on the industry.

Many believe making marijuana legal will free up police resources and ultimately save the state money.
