The Illinois Department of Public Health announced recently that beginning January 1st, the state will expand its medical cannabis program to include children.

Under the new rules, children with debilitating conditions such as seizure disorders will be able to use non-smokable forms of cannabis for medical purposes. They will, however, be required to gain approval from two doctors; adults require a recommendation from just a single physician.

In September, Illinois officially begin accepting applications for those wanting to become registered medical cannabis patients, and those wanting to operating medical cannabis businesses.

The state’s medical cannabis program – which includes cannabis dispensaries – is expected to go live in April.
