According to a report from the Chicago Tribune, a new state rule allows kids who reside in Illinois access to medical marijuana by the turn of the year. Young users may only take the drug through marijuana-induced goods ranging from liquid drops to food products. The new regulations under the Illinois Department of Public Health will not allow them to take pot in its raw form to be lit for smoking.
This action stems from public clamor for marijuana treatment in children’s diseases such as seizures, muscular dystrophy and cancer.
Kids who will be treated using marijuana products may only obtain the drug under adult supervision, and with the approval of two doctors including their own physician.
