Illinois To Legalize Marijuana For Medical Conditions HB0030

Wisconsin's neighbor is expected to legalize medical marijuana today.   Bill HB0030 was formed and put forward by Sara Feigenholtz, Kelly M. Cassidy, Greg Harris, Lou Lang, Angelo Saviano, Ann Williams, Robyn Gabel, and Kenneth Dunkin.

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is expected to sign the bill legalizing the use of marijuana for medical purposes today.  This would provide another treatment option for supporting individuals suffering with a chronic illness.  When signed the availability would begin January 1, 2014. 

The medical doctor writes the order prescribing the marijuana.  The prescription lists a chronic medical diagnosis with undesired symptoms that marijuana through research has proven to relieve.

Current regulations permit no more than 2.5 ounces of marijuana to be prescribed over a 2 week period.   The prescription can be filled through approximately 60 certified dispensing centers throughout the State of Illinois.

Medical marijuana cannot legally be grown by a person with a prescription.  The source to supply the certified dispensing centers is 22 growing centers registered with the State of Illinois.
