State To Start Accepting Medical Marijuana Apps
Sep. 01, 2014
(Springfield, IL) -- People with things like cancer, HIV, Aids, Chrohn's Disease, MS, and seizure disorders can start applying for a medical marijuana license tomorrow. The state will start accepting applications from those whose last names begin with letters A through L. They'll need to have a prescription from their doctor in order to get the license. They'll also need to submit fingerprints and get a background check. The Department of Health will have up to 30-days to review the application. Patients who are approved will be allowed to get up two-and-a-half ounces of medical marijuana every two-weeks.
