Smoke Weed for Education!
- Prominent civil rights attorney Jon Loevy hopes to get into the medical marijuana business.
The Chicago attorney, who has taken on Chicago cops accused of police misconduct, is part of a group that wants to open a medical marijuana farm in downstate Edgewood.
“Illinois has created a real opportunity for profits, and a lot of the groups chasing this are hedge funds and private equity firms trying to get rich,” Loevy said. “We see this as an opportunity to reroute millions of dollars to education in Illinois when it’s really needed.”
Loevy and his partners have pledged to give away at least half of their earnings to educational initiatives throughout the state.
Anyone check the political contributions of all these people applying for weed licenses?
