Although you won’t find marijuana roadblocks along the Indiana/Illinois border, State Police are reminding citizens who may head across the border to buy legal pot, weed is still illegal in the Hoosier state.
The Illinois legislature voted last week to legalize marijuana for recreational purposes. The state already legalized medicinal marijuana. However, State Police spokesman First Sgt. Ron Galaviz tells Indy Politics that doesn’t matter.
“Regardless of the legislation passed by our neighboring states, we will uphold the criminal laws of Indiana,” he said. “We do not recognize any cards or documents from other states that give individuals the right to possess and consume marijuana.”
