Posted by wlpo on April 25, 2016

Turn back the clock to last Wednesday; did you do anything special to mark the date of 4-20? Conservation Police decided to go out looking for pot smokers in the state park.

With the help of a state drug dog, 19 tickets were issued last Wednesday for possession of Cannabis while at Starved Rock State Park. A handful of park visitors were also ticketed for having alcohol or paraphernalia.

Nearly two dozen people were ticketed for going off the marked trails.
