The Legalized Collection from the Blockchain Mint celebrates the states and the federal district of Washington D.C. that have moved to legalize recreational cannabis us in the United States. The series offers 1 oz silver proof and antique rounds for each of these states, as well as 5 oz silver proof and antique rounds for the nations that have adopted federal-level laws decriminalizing cannabis on a recreational level.
To date, 33 states in the US allow for the use of medicinal cannabis, but this requires a prescription and the market is tightly controlled. With the addition of Illinois, there are now 11 states in the US that allow for the recreational purchase and use of cannabis without any sort of prescription. The movement was started by voters in Colorado in 2012.
The obverse of the 1 oz Antique Legalized Collection Illinois Silver Round features the image of a cannabis leaf in the center that has handcuffs on its leaf hands. This design symbolizes the history of restrictions on cannabis use for recreational purposes in the United States.
On the reverse side of 1 oz Antique Legalized Collection Illinois Silver Rounds is a depiction of the state seal of Illinois. To celebrate legalization, cannabis design elements have been included in the state seal design. Similar to other states, Illinois has a long history of legal actions to prevent the use of cannabis in the state.
Illinois first prohibited the recreational use of cannabis in 1931. The Cannabis Control Act was passed in 1978, but the state never took action on it. Medical cannabis was opened up in 2013 with the decriminalization of cannabis use coming in 2016. In May 2019, the Illinois General Assembly passed the Illinois Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act to legalize recreational marijuana come January 1, 2020.
Your 1 oz Antique Legalized Collection Illinois Silver Round comes with a Blockchain Mint blisterpack to secure the round and provide certificate number information.
