The “Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act” as described in “Amendment to HB 1438,” was signed into law by Governor Pritzker on June 25, 2019. This legislation permits the cultivation, selling, and the adult use of cannabis, beginning January 1, 2020. The implementation of this legislation will have a tremendous effect on all aspects of law enforcement. The most profound impact will be on traffic safety. Illinois officers need to be trained to understand the legislation and to take appropriate action when required.
