Access to medical marijuana doctors in Illinois began in August 2013 when the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act became effective. Individuals diagnosed with at least one qualifying condition are eligible to apply for an Illinois cannabis registry ID card. However, they must first receive written certification by a marijuana doctor in Illinois that provides detailed description of their debilitating disease or disorder.
If the individual is receiving health services at a veteran’s facility, they do not need a doctor’s recommendation. Instead, veterans are instructed to submit at least one year’s worth of medical records kept by the VA medical clinic from which they receive their care.
Beginning January 2015, Illinois marijuana doctors can provide recommendations for children less than 18 years old diagnosed with a debilitating medical issue. In addition, the Illinois Department of Health added seizure disorders, PTSD and any terminal illness to the list of qualifying conditions. Other improvements to Illinois’ MMJ program include streamlining the ability of a medical marijuana doctor in Illinois to help patients qualify for a registry ID card.
