Pritzker’s pot revenue depends on unfiled legalization legislation


Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s proposed budget for fiscal 2020 includes $170 million in new revenue from licensing fees for legalized recreational marijuana, but the details of such legislation are not yet finalized.

State Sen. Heather Steans and state Rep. Kelly Cassidy, both Chicago Democrats who have been working on marijuana legislation for two years, said they wouldn’t rush the process on behalf of revenue.
