How can it be possible for a drug treatment center to close for lack of funds in Illinois?

The Chicago Tribune article titled: Money woes doom drug treatment center, reported the following statement?

“A unique drug treatment program that has been a beacon for women struggling with addiction will close Friday after years of financial strain, …”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient proverb, an ildiom, and to question why any drug treatment centers should be closing when taxes profits from selling recreational marijuana which are proven to add drug addictions are booming?

King Solomon

 9The produce of the earth is taken by all; the king himself profits from the fields.(Ecclesiastes 5:9)

In My Opinion

Frankly, there will never be enough funding in the near future to fund treatments for drug addiction as a result of the increasing uses of recreational marijuana.

If more people using recreational marijuana as a result of the State law, will the health effects the CDC warns about increase the need for higher sales taxes to treat drug addiction, mental illness, etc. etc. in the future.

Was approval of recreational marijuana really going to result in the idiom no problem, thank you: in the future of Illinois taxpayers?

Should tilling the soil to grow recreational marijuana results be shared by the voters who approved the referendum wording posed to them by legislators that led to selling legal recreational marijuana which stated “for school funding/”
