In Illinois there is a law named the Cannabis Control Act which prohibits the possession, the possession with the intent to deliver, and the delivery of cannabis, commonly referred to as “marijuana.” There are various consequences and penalties for different levels and severity of violations of the Act based on quantity or the intent to deliver, or where the cannabis was delivered, or if the cannabis can be proved to come from another state. There are also federal laws that prohibit similar conduct as prohibited in Illinois.
