Legal Pot Illinois Dubuque Police

The sale of marijuana for recreational purposes is now legal in Illinois. Just across the Mississippi River in Dubuque, police aren’t really sure what to expect. Lieutenant Joe Messerich of the Dubuque Police Departments says the department is choosing to take a “wait and see” approach. The biggest concern for the department is people driving over to Illinois, using the drug, and then driving back to Dubuque. Messerich said the department can and will pull people over for impaired driving. Messerich would like to remind Iowans that marijuana products, including CBD, are still illegal in Iowa. The State of Illinois has only licensed 37 dispensaries and those are mainly in the Chicago and Rockford areas. Some of those dispensaries aren’t ready to open, and others are predicted to sell out quickly.
