Medical Pot Applications Available Today
(Springfield, IL) -- Medical patients who believe they qualify for medical marijuana can start the process of applying for the necessary permit, if their last name falls in the first half of the alphabet. That process started yesterday. Patients whose names start with A through L can apply online or by mail today through October, while those with names beginning with M through Z can apply in November or December. The state is still early in the process of deciding where marijuana dispensaries and cultivation centers will be located and it won't be until sometime next year when the system is up and running.
