“There’s other ways to generate revenue, not on the backs of our kids and young adults who are going to be addicted and sucked into this.” So said State Representative Marty Moylan (D-Des Plaines), at a news conference that was held outside the Thompson Center earlier this month. Rep. Moylan is leading a bipartisan effort that opposes Illinois Governor JB Pritzker’s precipitous push to legalize recreational marijuana.
Please watch as Rep. Moylan voices concerns regarding aggressive commercialization, increased addiction, impact on neighborhoods, and compliance and oversight challenges. Parents and grandparents especially need to be aware of the negative effects legalized, high potency marijuana will impose on the children and youth of Illinois.
