Cards Against Humanity, the popular card game, announced on Thursday that the company is donating $70,000 to support the effort to legalize marijuana in Illinois.

The company headquartered in Chicago is handing over proceeds from one of its card packs to the Marijuana Policy Project.

"A recent poll says that 66 percent of Illinois voters support regulating marijuana like we do alcohol,” says Cards Against Humanity co-creator, Max Temkin.

“You’re telling me this effort is something the vast majority of people support that makes everyone happy and pays for our schools and roads, and we’re not doing it?" he continued.

Earlier this year, a bill was introduced in the state capitol to legalize recreational pot but it stalled. Another effort is expected next year.

Illinois already has a medical marijuana program.
