Springfield holding public hearing on medical marijuana rules

SPRINGFIELD - Illinois health officials are holding the second of two public hearings May 21, on proposed rules that would affect patients who want to use medical marijuana.  The rules under consideration would affect how adult patients with specific health conditions will be able to buy marijuana.

The start of a formal rule making process and a public comment period was marked by the proposed rules being published in the Illinois Register on April 18.  Patients would pay $100 a year to apply for a medical marijuana card, but veterans and the disabled could acquire the card at a lower cost.
