Pot Banned From Chicago Public Housing, Even After Marijuana is Legalized January 1st

November 19, 2019
There's a catch-22 at work in the legal cannabis industry: People who live in federally subsidized housing can't use cannabis at home. It doesn't matter if it's legal in their state, it doesn't matter if they're registered medical cannabis patient. If a public housing resident uses cannabis, they risk serious consequences, like eviction. Edie Moore, the Executive Director of Chicago NORML, joined Cheddar to discuss what this means for Chicago residents living in public housing when recreational pot is legalized January 1st.
