CHICAGO (WEEK) -- -

Democratic candidate for governor JB Pritzker rolled out his criminal justice reform plan in Chicago Thursday, calling for marijuana legalization and other measures. 

Pritzker said sentencing guidelines for low-level drug offenders should also be changed. Pritzker also called for reforming the juvenile justice system, treating gun violence as a "public health epidemic," and reducing recidivism. 

Illinois currently has a medical marijuana pilot program, but does not have legalized recreational cannabis.
