Legal Help For Medical Marijuana Law In Illinois

Both chambers of the Illinois General Assembly are reported to have voted to expand the state’s medical marijuana law to include more suffering patients. Earlier today, the House voted 98 to 18 to allow both adults and minors with seizure disorder to qualify for medical cannabis.
Illinois medical marijuana law which was signed into law last August is one of the only three to leave behind seriously ill minors. The House amended SB 2636 to also allow the health department to develop rules allowing other seriously ill minors to qualify. The bill now heads to the Senate for concurrence.
Efforts are underway to urge Gov. Pat Quinn to sign the compassionate and modest improvement to the program when it reaches his desk.
