Hemp Bill in General Assembly to allow legal growth in Illinois
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
A hemp bill is in the General Assembly.
It would allow marijuana to grow legally in the state and could mark a major shift for growers if approved.
Some say this addresses a lack of marijuana regulations.
According to the Hemp Business Journal, hemp products have increased 30 percent to 262 million dollars nationwide in 2016.
It's projected that figure will increase to more than a billion dollars in 2020.
