ILLINOIS: Even before Gov. Pat Quinn put ink to paper Thursday on a bill that legalizes medical marijuana in Illinois, a new clinic ready to facilitate the legislation waited in the wings.
Good Intentions, the self-proclaimed first medical marijuana clinic in Illinois, plans to open in Chicago on Aug. 7 and will offer physician evaluations and begin taking calls immediately from patients with questions about the state’s certification process.
“I anticipate that the State of Illinois will be using the next few months to sort out regulations and implementation of the program before the new law takes effect in January,” Good Intentions president Tammy Jacobi said. “In the meantime, we encourage patients to contact us and learn more about how to become an Illinois medical marijuana patient.”
