Medical Cannabis Pilot Program
On May 4, the Board recommended 11 conditions and diseases be added to the Illinois Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act. However, before patient registration applications can be accepted for any new conditions or diseases, the director of the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) must approve recommendations made by the Board, and IDPH must draft rules to add those conditions and diseases. Applications submitted prior to the 11 recommended conditions being added to the program will be rejected and the application fee refunded. The Department strongly encourages patients to wait before sending applications associated with the 11 recommended conditions and diseases. Please monitor this webpage as to when applications will be accepted.
