Legal pot in Illinois means concerns in Iowa

With Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker expected to sign a bill to legalize recreational marijuana, it means Iowans who want to partake will need to follow the laws and Iowa police will likely have to deal with those who bring it back across the state line. Visitors or tourists in the Land of Lincoln will be allowed to possess a lesser amount of marijuana than residents and Iowans won't be able to legally bring it home. Illinois is the first state to legalize commercial sales of recreational marijuana through the legislature rather than a voter initiative.
