Politician Info
B Suzy Glowiak Hilton (D - IL) MEDICAL USE

Holds office State Senate District 23

Position on Marijuana Legalization

"I am open to legalization of cannabis; however, I would only support a legalization bill that is coupled with strict regulation so that minors are not able to obtain cannabis. Tax revenue from cannabis sales should support meaningful education investments, and used to invest in community support programs."

(email correspondence with Chicago NORML, September 2018)

Position on Marijuana Decriminalization

"The Illinois legislature should pass HB 2367 to allow people convicted of Marijuana possession of less than 10g prior to decriminalization to petition to have their records expunged."

(email correspondence with Chicago NORML, September 2018)

Position on Medical Marijuana

"Before 2020, Illinois needs to pass a law that makes the medical marijuana program permanent. We also need to increase the number of dispensaries and cultivation centers, so that as conditions are added for treatment and demand for medical marijuana grows, we are prepared to meet increased needs. I also think there should be an audit of zoning restrictions to see if there are ways to make having a marijuana related facility easier to manage while not harming the local community."
