What legalized marijuana in Illinois means for Missouri residents

Ed Herman of Brown and Crouppen explains how the new Illinois law legalizing recreational marijuana affects Missouri residents.

Illinois has become the 11th state in the U.S. to legalize marijuana for recreational use. What will this mean for residents in Missouri? Ed Herman of Brown and Crouppen is here to tell us more.

Ed starts by explaining that recreational marijuana is sweeping the nation, and Illinois is the most recent state to jump on. If you are an Illinois resident, you are in good shape as long as you buy certain, limited qualities. If you are a non-resident that happens to be in Illinois, Illinois will still allow you to buy half of the amount that they would allow for an Illinois resident. You would have to use the product in the state of Illinois though, as Missouri still does not allow for the recreational use of marijuana.

Switching gears, make sure you check out BC TV. This is Brown and Crouppen’s YouTube channel. On Thursday of this week, the next episode of the Ed vs. series comes out entitled "Ed vs. Facebook." It is a six minute video, and Ed says he tries to talk about all of the familiar characters that you would find on Facebook.
