Medical marijuana gains support in Illinois
Medical marijuana has gained the support of many, including Illinois’ Lieutenant Governor.
Sheila Simon said she wasn’t originally in support of a bill legalizing medicinal marijuana in Illinois. After hearing from people with illnesses, Simon changed her mind, according to a report by the Q.C. Times.
The proposal allows doctors to prescribe up to 2.5-ounces of medical marijuana for patients who are terminally ill or have medical conditions.
