What is "casual delivery" of cannabis under Illinois law?

Generally, here in Illinois, being accused of having delivered cannabis to another exposes a person to heftier potential penalties than they would face for possessing cannabis.

State law dictates that, for penalty purposes, a casual delivery of cannabis is to be treated the same as cannabis possession rather than treated as cannabis delivery.
