Illinois to accept cultivation permit applications for medical marijuana program

Posted:

The state of Illinois' pilot medical marijuana program is expected to get underway in 2015, but it might be several months in to the new year before qualified patients will be able to buy anything.

The state Department of Agriculture says it will be taking applications around September for 21 cultivation permits.

That corresponds to each of the state police districts across the state. The permits could be awarded before the end of the year.

And the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation will use a similar timeline to accept applications for 60 marijuana dispensaries.
