The day that many in Illinois have been waiting for is almost here. This Wednesday marijuana becomes legal in our state, BUT you cannot just smoke it anywhere you want or buy as much if it as your wallet will allow.

With any new law, there are always a lot of questions about what we can and cannot do legally, but with this one there are A LOT. Hopefully, this video from the Rockford Police Department will help clear up most of them for you...



FYI, there will be a few dispensaries in Rockford open on New Year's Day so you can start celebrating the law immediately. MedMar/ aka Sunnyside on McFarland Road and Mapleglen Care Center on Stenstrom Road will both be ready to serve you on Wednesday, so please use responsibly.
