Jan 2 - You can now legally buy marijuana in Illinois
 

 
Illinois is the second state in the Midwest to allow recreational marijuana sales.

With the start of the new year, Illinois became the second state in the Midwest to allow recreational marijuana sales.

Illinois, where the legislature and governor passed a law to legalize marijuana in 2019, let stores start selling marijuana for recreational purposes on January 1, 2020. According to the Chicago Tribune, 37 marijuana stores in the state were licensed and able to open with the start of 2020.

In Illinois, anyone age 21 or older can purchase and possess marijuana. The state is licensing retailers and others along the supply line — although, as in other states, local jurisdictions can opt out of sales. About 40 local jurisdictions have done so, according to the Tribune.

Lt. Gov. Juliana Stratton (D) was among the first to buy marijuana this week, purchasing pot gummies at a Chicago store.

Meanwhile, Gov. JB Pritzker (D), who signed the legalization law, granted more than 11,000 pardons for low-level marijuana offenses on December 31 — fulfilling a promise that the new law would stop not just future marijuana arrests and convictions but undo previous ones as well.

Illinois previously allowed the use and sale of marijuana for medical purposes.

Illinois was the second state in the Midwest to legalize, following Michigan, where sales for recreational use began in December. Nine other states and Washington, DC, have legalized marijuana, although one of those states, Vermont, and DC don’t allow sales for recreational use.


Supporters of legalization argue that it eliminates the harms of marijuana prohibition: the hundreds of thousands of arrests around the US, the racial disparities underlying those arrests, and the billions of dollars that flow from the black market for illicit marijuana to drug cartels that then use the money for violent operations around the world. All of this, legalization advocates say, will outweigh any of the potential downsides — such as increased cannabis use — that might come with legalization.

Opponents, however, claim that legalization will enable a huge marijuana industry that will market the drug irresponsibly. They point to America’s experiences with the alcohol and tobacco industries in particular, which have built their financial empires, in large part, on some of the heaviest consumers of their products. This could result in more people using pot, even if it leads to negative health consequences.

The only good thing that comes from legalization is decriminalization. If you making illegal money in the pot game it’s no need to go legal cause government oversight/taxes have went overboard.

DUDE WHAT.

Again, just buy a tent, a clone, 600 watt HPS, water every other day, check ph with a meter, follow directions on nutes. Get a fan too. Humidifier/ dehumidifier would be good too, but not necessary.
Get an autoflower so you can't fu*k up the lighting.

Big POT is sh*t.
It's a literal WEED.
Easy as sh*t to grow.

Sounds like you speak from experience, would something like this have everything a bx'er would need? Would you know how much more the light bill is a month? Been thinking about this for a short while just haven't researched it properly

Only people surprised at the prices and taxes are out of towners.

If you’ve ever been to chicago/crook county, and spent any money you know our taxes are fu*king outlandish.
The whole time they sold this to the public they never discussed enforcement and taxes which is always a tell. I expect them to be ruthless with fining people in entertainment districts AND at concerts because the paperwork will now be effortless.

Anyway the only products that probably should be bought through legitimate sellers in the case of cartridges. Literally everything else can feasibly be produced in-house or through an illicit supply chain without putting yourself at risk. If you don’t move like a cop. Went to check out a dispensary with the crew and two cartridges (.5 each) ran me 140 after menu said it’d be 100. Cotdamn.
Feels like a hood gas station: can look but touch nothing.

Nothing like Vegas or CO.

It comes down to Kw/H so it's hard to say because their is variance depending on where you live.
You would be paying less than 50$ a month, I'd say, and that's generous. It also depends on how many plants you have, because you'd need more wattage/ bigger bulb and possibly more ballasts.
I'm partial to micro grows and cycles, so if you have 3 I'd say you'd be all set with a 600 watt.
If you do full indoor and keep up with it, you can get an oz. including trim per plant. So you'd be looking at a little more than 2 ozs., for 3 plants. That's conservative. Your first grow could be as little as 10 grams per plant, full weight, but don't be dissuaded.

If you own land that's a super game changer and makes it way cheaper. It's still a great value to do full indoor though.

Edit: That kit isn't bad, the carbo. filter is nice if you are worried about smell. Stay away from LED bulbs. High Pressure Sodium is a better look.
