Drug Offenses

A bill that would have replaced criminal penalties for simple possession of marijuana with a civil fine failed to advance this year. Gov. Bruce Rauner issued an amendatory veto to HB 218, calling for an increase in the possible fine and a decrease in the amount of cannabis covered, but supporting the core purpose of the bill. The clock ran out on approving HB 218 with the amendatory language, but there is still plenty of time for a new vehicle to be used for a proposal the governor can sign. Fortunately, lawmakers are currently working on a compromise with the governor’s office, and a new bill is expected to emerge before the end of the year.
