A referendum on a March 2018 ballot could be crucial moving forward towards legalizing marijuana in Illinois.

Cook County, it's been passed to you. According to Time Out, there is a March 20th, 2018 vote that holds, a lot.

This is an "advisory referendum" that won't make pot instantly legal, but it does allow 40% of Illinois voters to vote on the pot future.

If you know those in favor of legal weed that lives in Cook County, please remind them...maybe hourly, when this vote is taking place.

A poll taken earlier in 2017 by Southern Illinois University found that 74% of Chicagoans are for the legalization of the reefer. Again, March 20th people.
