Sales of medical marijuana began at licensed dispensaries on Nov. 9, 2015, and the Illinois Medical Marijuana Program is moving ahead at full force. They have one of the most robust condition list in the nation. The state’s medical cannabis program improved in 2017, when it was extended until at least July 2020, and both PTSD and terminal illness were added as qualifying medical conditions. Currently there are over 50 dispensaries operating state wide in Illinois.
Rep. Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago) said in a radio interview on Nov 23rd that a “methodical and deliberate” push to introduce a bill is heating up after about 1 ½ years of talks in public hearings and conversations with stakeholders. She says support to legalize the plant has been “overwhelming”, with polls showing about two-thirds of Illinoisans in favor. After the new Illinois legislature is sworn into office in January, Cassidy says lawmakers will be “ready to go” and push the bill forward. Exact details of what it includes are unknown, but she says lawmakers have talked with J.B. Pritzker’s team to ensure their bill matches his vision.
On May 31, 2019 the The Illinois House gave final approval to the legalization measure on Friday in a 66-47 vote, after the state Senate passed an amended version by a 38-17 margin on Wednesday night. This bill also allows medical marijuana patients to grow their own. The bill now goes to Gov. J.B. Pritzker, a Democrat, for his expected signature.
