“Now that Illinois has legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes, the state and community stakeholders will need to work together to create a system that provides safe and efficient access to cannabis for patients”
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 02, 2013
On Thursday Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn (D) signed a bill into law legalizing the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. With his signature, the Democratic Governor made Illinois the 20th state, in addition to the District of Colombia, to legalize medical marijuana for patient use.
Under the new law, which is scheduled to take effect Jan. 1, 2014, a patient could be recommended no more than 2.5 ounces of marijuana over two weeks. Patients would have to buy the marijuana from one of 60 dispensing centers throughout the state and would not be allowed to legally grow their own. Marijuana would be grown inside 22 cultivation centers registered with the state.
