Green Candidate: Illinois Should Tax Marijuana

CHICAGO (AP) -- Green candidate Rich Whitney says Illinois could bring in about $300 million a year by taxing marijuana.

That's one of the ideas he discussed in a closed-door forum with the other candidates.

Whitney, Democrat Pat Quinn and Republican Bill Brady met privately with the Civic Federation of Chicago's board of directors today.

Afterward, both Quinn and Brady said marijuana should remain illegal.
