B+ Christopher Belt (D - IL) LEGALIZE, TAX, AND REGULATE
"Legalizing marijuana would generate $375 million-$500 million a year. Not only will we bring in additional revenue from moving to a recreational state, we will not be funding prosecutor fees, court fees, and housing fees for those who are incarcerated."

Holds office State Senate District 57

Position on Marijuana Legalization

"I will work with local officials and the Governor to secure revenue for infrastructure projects. To pay for this, we can do two things: switch from a flat tax, to a progressive tax on the wealthy, and move to a recreational state. Moving to a progressive tax would generate more than a billion dollars a year. Legalizing marijuana would generate $375 million-$500 million a year. Not only will we bring in additional revenue from moving to a recreational state, we will not be funding prosecutor fees, court fees, and housing fees for those who are incarcerated."
