1st Dist.
Division/County: 
Cook Co.

Affirmed and remanded.
Justice: 
FREEMAN
Defendant simultaneously possessed cannabis and two handguns, both discovered during same search at same time and place, and were thus the object of the same act of constructive possession. Thus, Defendant's simultaneous possession of cannabis and handguns was the same "act" per compulsory joinder statute because multiple offenses arose from this one act. (KILBRIDE, THOMAS, GARMAN, KARMEIER, BURKE, and THEIS, concurring.)
