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.
