ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) - The effort to legalize recreational marijuana use in Illinois has slowed down considerably as both Republican and Democrat lawmakers believe they may not have legislation drafted by a May 31st deadline.
"It's more than just saying it's a legal boom. There's a lot to it," said State Rep. Maurice West (D-Rockford).
Lawmakers in Springfield are still trying to figure out what to do about legalizing the drug.
"There's a lot of people who are for it, and there's a lot of people who are against it," West said.
