Illinois Medical Marijuana Bill Gets Another Look

Originally posted on CBS St. Louis:

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicagoan Julie Falco eats three marijuana brownies a day, her chosen method of taking the cannabis that controls her pain from multiple sclerosis.

She says marijuana works better for her than the prescription drugs that left her depressed and in a fog. She’s tired of breaking the law, but doesn’t want to give up cannabis.

Falco hopes Illinois lawmakers will remember her story as they consider a three-year pilot program to temporarily legalize medical marijuana for people with certain illnesses.

Bill sponsor Rep. Lou Lang wants the House to vote on the bill Wednesday and the Skokie Democrat thinks political momentum is on his side. Freeport Republican Rep. Jim Sacia opposes the bill, but acknowledges Lang may have the votes to pass it.

The bill is HB30.
