Share this post

By a vote of 61 to 57, the Illinois House on Wednesday approved the use of medical marijuana to patients with specific terminal illnesses or debilitating medical conditions. The legislation proposes a four-year pilot program that would require background checks for caregivers and patients, with a two-point-five ounce limit per patient per purchase. The measure now moves to the state Senate.
