Illinois Cannabis Transparency, Diversity & Social Equity
Few people in Illinois have spent as much time thinking about Illinois’ cannabis legalization laws as state Rep. Kelly Cassidy.
She and three other colleagues played a leading role in writing the legislation and passing it into law. She is a true expert and a keen observer of cannabis policies and she knows what’s going on in Illinois and beyond.
We checked in with her right as the Illinois General Assembly began its 2020 spring session, and right before the COVID-19 pandemic, to see what she thought about the implementation of the adult-use law and about what the future holds. This episode took place before the state’s license announcement delay.
