Legal heroin is legal in Illinois.
But what exactly is legal?
The short answer is: not much.
The long answer is, legal pot is legal.
So is cannabis.
And legal marijuana is legal too.
Legal cannabis, the legal, non-addictive version of cannabis, is a non-psychoactive plant.
The main difference between cannabis and legal heroin is the presence of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a chemical that gives it its distinctive flavour and aroma.
“The best way to describe legal cannabis is like drinking water,” says John Holme, a former federal prosecutor and author of a book on the subject, The Legal Pot: Why We Need to Regulate Marijuana Today.
“It’s the same as water but without the alcohol.
It’s more of a natural substance.”
“It has some unique properties,” Mr Holme adds.
The first step to the legal cannabis industry is the cultivation of cannabis.
The process involves two things: cutting the plant into a number of different pieces; and drying it.
The dried plant is then packed with various chemicals to make it more potent.
“In order to grow a plant you need to get the right chemicals to do it,” says Andrew Fazio, a law professor at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.
There’s no way to get a product that’s going to be safe for anyone without getting regulation.” “
One thing that you really need to know is that these chemicals will have to be regulated.

The legal cannabis market is estimated to be worth $30 billion a year, according to data from the US Department of Agriculture.
“When you look at it from a regulatory perspective, it’s a huge opportunity,” says James Altucher, a cannabis activist and former cannabis lawyer and director of the Marijuana Policy Project.
“If you have a product with a THC content of less than 0.1 per cent and you can get it to market within the first five years, you have something that is very profitable.”
The US government is also trying to regulate the recreational market of cannabis and to tax it, which is illegal under federal law.
It is estimated that recreational cannabis sales will be worth at least $3 billion a month in the US by 2021.
“I think the big question is, are the rules being applied fairly and fairly,” says Mr Holman.
“How do you make a product legal, so that people can buy it legally?”
“In a legal marketplace, the way to make money is to have a high quality product,” he adds.
“But a product’s quality isn’t the issue.
Legal cannabis has its detractors. “
So if you have an average product that is made by the same people, you don’t need regulation.”
Legal cannabis has its detractors.
Many see it as a gateway drug, which could be sold in unregulated legal dispensaries in the hope of stashing the profits.
Others, such as US cannabis entrepreneur Michael Fogle, see it in the same way as heroin: as an easy and effective way to skirt the drug laws of many states.
Mr Fogle says the US has been in the process of decriminalising marijuana since 2009, and legal weed sales have been booming since then.
“We’re now seeing the same sort of legal weed phenomenon happening in Canada, and we’re seeing it in Australia,” he says.
“As we get more people into the legal recreational market, there will be more of this.”
He predicts that there will eventually be a global boom in legal cannabis, which will be “the biggest legal market since the gold rush in the 19th century”.
But the legal weed market is also growing.
Legal weed is now legal in eight US states and the District of Columbia, as well as in Uruguay and Chile.
But Mr Fagen says it will take a long time before there is a mass market for cannabis.
“This is not something that will happen overnight,” he explains.
“Then once you have legal weed, it’ll be very difficult to regulate it, because the rules are going to change. “
“For example, when you’re a small grower, you might be allowed to grow marijuana in your backyard, but if you’re in a bigger grower you’re going out of luck.” “
Legal marijuana has been legal for recreational use in Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska, but it is illegal in other states, including California, Florida, Maine and New York. “

The US is not alone in legalising marijuana.
There are many other jurisdictions that allow recreational use
