Senator Steans

April 13, 2017

Dear Friends,


Legalizing recreational marijuana would be a big policy change in the state. I know many of you have feelings and opinions about this legislation, and as your state senator, it is important to me to hear your feedback on this legislation.


Please join me and State Representative Kelly Cassidy for a town hall to discuss legalizing recreational marijuana at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 19, at the Broadway Armory Park, 5917 N. Broadway. The event is free and open to the public. If you are able to attend, please RSVP here.


I do not plan to move forward with this bill hastily. Representative Cassidy and I want to ensure that there is ample time for organizations and individuals to voice their opinions and for us to adjust the legislation based on that information.


If you can’t make it on Wednesday, join us from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sunday, April 23, at the Rogers Park Social Club, 6920 N. Glenwood Ave., for a Meet and Greet. Representative Cassidy and I will be available to update you on legislation and the current state of affairs in Illinois. To RSVP for the Meet and Greet, click here.


As always, please do not hesitate to contact my office at 773-769-1717 or online with any questions or concerns.
