Medical marijuana rules unveiled

Posted:

CHICAGO (AP) -- Medical marijuana supporters are reacting to proposed regulations unveiled Tuesday by the Illinois Department of Public Health.

 

Chris Lindsey of the Marijuana Policy Project in Washington says the $150 annual fee for patients is burdensome. He says states like Michigan charge less and generate big surpluses.

 

But he applauds Illinois for proposing an advisory board to review petitions for adding medical conditions to the list approved for marijuana.

 

Jim Champion is an Illinois veteran with multiple sclerosis. He says he's concerned that patients and caregivers can't get medical marijuana cards if they have firearm owners ID cards because of state and federal laws.
