Regulators behind the first rules for Illinois' medical marijuana industry have lowered patient fees.
Revised preliminary rules were unveiled Friday for the state's four-year pilot program. Under those rules, it would now cost $100 a year for patients to apply for a medical marijuana card in Illinois. Disabled people and veterans would pay half of that amount each year. The fees were reduced after patients complained over original fees suggested by the Illinois Department of Public Health.
The public has 45 days to comment on draft rules. More information can be found at mcpp.illinois.gov.
