Illinois loosens restrictions on medical marijuana for children with seizures
Published on 7/21/14
A series of ammendments to the Illinois law permitting usage of medical marijuana for children and adults suffering from epilepsy was just signed by Illinois Governor Pat Quinn. This was among other changes as the state puts on the final touches before the full program begins early 2015.
"This new law will help alleviate the suffering of many adults and children across the state," Quinn said in statement. "Epilepsy is a debilitating condition, and this much-needed relief will help to reduce some of its symptoms for those who endure seizures."
