The Illinois attorney general’s office has issued a subpoena for the personal phone records of more than 200 people, asking for the names of anyone who attended a “party” on or near a date between January 1 and May 1, 2017, when the Illinois law allowed anyone 21 years old or older to possess up to an ounce of cannabis.
The law allows anyone 21 and older to have up to one ounce of marijuana in their vehicle.
The subpoena was issued to the Illinois attorney generals office by Illinois State Police on Wednesday.
It asks for information from “any and all” law enforcement agencies, including police, sheriff’s departments, prosecutors and judges.
It also asks for a list of “any witnesses who were present at the party.”
The law also requires any and all witnesses to give police a copy of a police report, including one with “any identifying information” about them, if asked.
A law enforcement source told the Chicago Tribune that police received the request after a tip-off from a Chicago woman who said she attended a party on January 1.
The source, who requested anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation, said that police found “a few things” at the “party.”
They found a couple of adults, a woman, who had been smoking pot, the source said.
She said she was drinking heavily.
She wasn’t smoking a joint or a joint.
But she had been drinking alcohol before the party, and she didn’t want her kids there.
The Illinois attorney is asking for a copy or a description of all witnesses who attended the party.
The attorney general said it would not release information about the person who called police to report the party unless there was probable cause to believe the person involved was in possession of drugs.
A spokeswoman for the attorney general declined to say if any witnesses were identified or if the law enforcement investigation had yielded any leads.
