Know the Rules - and the Risks - Associated with Medical Cannabis

August 20, 2019

Earlier this month, Governor Pritzker signed Senate Bill 2023 into law, making the Illinois Medical Cannabis Pilot Program a permanent program. This legislation also expands who can access the program, increases the number of caregivers that patients can designate to help them access medical cannabis, and adds 11 new qualifying conditions.
