Illinois becomes 11th state to allow recreational marijuana

"Today, we're hitting the 'reset' button on the war on drugs," Cassidy said.

Residents may purchase and possess up to 1 ounce (30 grams) of marijuana at a time. Non-residents may have 15 grams. The law provides for cannabis purchases by adults 21 and older at approved dispensaries, which, after they're licensed and established, may start selling Jan. 1, 2020.
