  1. Governor
  2. Medical Cannabis Pilot Program

Update on April 18 2014 

The Illinois Department of Public Health, Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, Department of Revenue and Department of Agriculture have formally filed medical cannabis pilot program administrative rules. These rules incorporate many of the comments and suggestions we have received from the public.

Today begins the 45-day "First Notice" public comment period on the rules, which shall be followed by the "Second Notice" period where the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules will consider adoption of the rules.

The rules are published at the Illinois Register. We have also posted online the red-lined versions of the rules, illustrating all changes that have been made following the initial informal rules posting several months ago. The red-lined versions and contact information for the agencies can be accessed below:
