Illinois recently legalized the recreational sale of cannabis. The new law allows anyone 21 years of age or older to purchase and possess up to 30 grams of cannabis legally. Illinois is now the 11th state to legally allow for the sale of recreational cannabis. Previously the state passed the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act in 2013, which allowed for the consumption of medical marijuana.
While recreational cannabis consumption often overshadows medical marijuana, it's essential to recognize that medical consumption of cannabis continues after recreational laws pass. Patients with medical conditions may still apply for a state-registered medical card and receive numerous benefits for doing so. For instance, anyone who purchases cannabis from a legal dispensary, such as Verilife, receives 30% off of their cannabis purchase.
