Illinois is one of 18 states that legalized the use of marijuana for recreational purposes. However, that does not mean that anyone can use this substance at anytime without consequence. There are still many marijuana-related laws on the books, including laws limiting the quantity of marijuana a person can possess and where he or she can possess it. For example, Illinois law prohibits the use of cannabis in schools or on public transportation. It is also illegal to drive under the influence of cannabis.
