Another big problem in Illinois is students eating marijuana candy in school and having to be sent home or for medical attention.

Marijuana Candy Has Become A Regular Problem In Illinois

Recreational marijuana may be legal in Illinois but that doesn't mean all the residents are ready to try it. That includes anyone that is underage. Pot is for adults over the age of twenty-one. These kids need to wait a few years before they jump on the weed bandwagon. They just aren't mature enough to handle it.

According to,

Each year, there are more and more incidents of kids stealing cannabis edibles from their parents and bringing them to school. They'll pass them out to classmates. Of course, after they kick in the effect freaks out the students. They usually get sent to the nurse. Depending on how high they get, there could be a trip to the emergency room in the future or home.
