Gun language dropped from Illinois medical marijuana rules


Language barring legal gun owners from using cannabis has been dropped from the proposed rules governing medical marijuana in Illinois.

A person close to the rule-writing process released the information, but spoke on the condition of anonymity. The regulations are expected to be published Friday.

Some patients have said they would continue using medical marijuana illegally instead of giving up their FOID cards.

Caregivers applying for medical marijuana cards were also affected by the wording, as both patients and caregivers would have to certify their understanding of the rule, which stemmed from an interpretation of federal law.
