Illinois To Begin First Medical Marijuana Sales Within Two Weeks

Mundelein, IL  (KTRS)  Illinois will begin its first medical marijuana sales within the next two weeks and public sentiment ranges from cautious to elated.

State officials announced on Thursday that required ID cards are being mailed this week to 3,200 approved patients.  About a half-dozen retail shops are licensed and ready.

It will be a big moment for the 2-year-old pilot program. Patients will finally get a chance to buy a drug legally that some admit they now purchase on the black market.

 

Some say they will drive long distances to buy their first legal weed. Critics worry this will increase crime in areas where the medical marijuana is sold. Police plan to increase patrols in those areas.

Illinois medical marijuana program director Joseph Wright says an exact start date will be announced soon.
