04242018CM0832RSPRINGFIELD – State Senator Toi Hutchinson (D-Chicago Heights) released the following statement this evening after voting in support of House Bill 1438, a proposal Hutchinson co-sponsored and was actively involved in negotiating that would legalize adult-use cannabis in Illinois.

“One of the things that we wanted to make sure we accomplished with legalization was ensuring we put social equity at the center and the heart of our efforts, acknowledging that while we normalize and legalize something that is happening across the country, that we tie the direct nexus to the communities that the prohibition has hurt the most.

“We are really proud of these provisions that enable us to study this new law, track any success or failures and give ourselves the time and information needed to self-correct if it doesn’t do what it is we expect it to do.”
