Hemp Bill Could Grow Profits in Illinois

SPRINGFIELD, ILL. (KMOX) – Growing marijuana could soon become legal in the state of Illinois.

The bill is currently in the General Assembly and would mark a major shift for growers of marijuana – if it’s approved.

According to the Hemp Business Journal, hemp products have increased 30 percent to $262 million nationwide in 2016. It’s projected that figure will increase to more than a $1 billion in 2020.
