Nov 13th 2019

Join activists, advocates, and legal experts for this important public forum about racial equity and cannabis legislation.

Even as medical marijuana and cannabis will be legal in Illinois as of January, 2020, medical and recreational use of marijuana will be strictly prohibited in public housing, including all homes and households part of Chicago Housing Authority’s Housing Voucher Program.

Join us for a public conversation about the future of cannabis in Illinois and the fight for justice and equity in public housing communities, some of the people and places that have been most impacted by the war on drugs.
