Medical Marijuana Bill in Illinois

According to a recent The New York Times article entitled “Illinois: Medical Marijuana Bill Advances”, on April 17, 2013, the State House of Representatives voted 61 to 57 to allow physicians to prescribe marijuana to patients with specific terminal illnesses or debilitating medical conditions. The legislation goes to the State Senate. A similar version was approved by State Senate in 2009.

A limit per patient per purchase is 2.5-ounce.

Gov. Pat Quinn has not said whether he would sign the bill.
