Medical Cannabis Program

Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Program

The Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act went into effect on January 1, 2014. 5 years later, the Act was amended by Public Act 101-363, taking the program from "pilot" status to permanent.

Under the Compassionate use of Medical Cannabis Program Act, the Department of Agriculture was charged with registering and regulating up to 22 cultivation centers allowed in the law. The Department of Agriculture's administrative rules regarding cultivation centers can be found at 8 Illinois Administrative Code Part 1000. 

Please visit the Medical Cannabis Patient Program website for past drafts of the rules, program updates and frequently asked questions.
