Educate citizens of the impact recreational marijuana could have on the state of Illinois based on scientific research and sound principals of public health and safety.
The Illinois Sheriffs’ Association, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization supported entirely by contributions, was founded in 1928. Originally, its purpose was to create better communication and cooperation between Sheriffs and encourage more professional training and growth. Over the years, the ISA has expanded its goals and objectives to include training and development for Sheriffs and their key support staff, as well as providing educational information to the citizens of Illinois.
The Association also realized that today’s youth hold the key to society’s future. So the ISA decided to encourage youth by supporting and creating various youth-oriented programs. Through the monetary support of its various membership dues and contributions the ISA continues to maintain, create and expand training, youth and membership programs.
Our mission is to educate Illinois citizens of the impact recreational marijuana has had on current states that have enacted its use into law. Our information is based on scientific research and sound principals of public health and safety.
“Just Facts” was created to educate the general public about recreational marijuana. We believe that a grassroots education program aimed at informing the general public on the unintended consequences of marijuana would be the most successful way to change the mindset that recreational cannabis can solve the state’s financial problems and no harm would come from such a change in policy. Our passion and knowledge for this cause may have a greater impact and allow citizens to get true and credible information on which to base their opinions.
