Quinn Considers Medical Marijuana Bill


Governor Pat Quinn says he is giving serious thought to the legislation that would, for the first time, allow Illinois doctors to prescribe marijuana to treat the symptoms of certain illnesses.

 

The governor hasn't indicated yet whether he would sign the legislation, but hinted that he has been listening to supporters of the legislation.  In particular, Quinn referenced a veteran who said marijuana could have relieved symptoms he's battling for years.

 

The bill sent to Quinn on Friday authorizes a four-year pilot program with limits on when pot could be prescribed and how it would be distributed.
