Marijuana will be legal for all Illinois residents and visitors over the age of 21 beginning in January, but he law does not protect those people from possibly losing their jobs, homes and more.
“It is not a free ticket to go and buy marijuana and smoke it anywhere and anytime,” said attorney Larry Mishkin. “If you do that, you’ll face legal consequences.”
If the landlord of an apartment or home says no pot on the property, nothing changes due to the law.
“That can be grounds to have you evicted,” Mishkin said.
