Legalizing Weed: Tweets About Medical Marijuana Legalization in Illinois

By    |   Saturday, 04 Apr 2015 03:55 PM

Illinois House Bill 1 was passed in 2013, legalizing medical use of marijuana in that state. Today, 23 states allow the sale and use of medical marijuana, and each has specified conditions for use and purchase of the substance, also known as "weed." 

Medical therapy to treat disease and/or symptoms using cannabis or any of its products, is commonly referred to as using medical marijuana. The practice has been legalized in 23 states, including Illinois, with a few stipulations in place. Users and caregivers (who can pick up the marijuana for very ill patients) in Illinois must register with the state, as stipulated on the Illinois government website.

Patients should discuss their questions with their primary care or pain management healthcare professionals. The use of marijuana has shown positive results in many situations; however, the American Medical Association (AMA) opposes legislation aimed at legalizing the drug for medical or other purposes.
