How Do I Receive a Medical Marijuana Card in Illinois?

The Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act was passed in 2013 and took effect the following year. This was the beginning of medical marijuana programs in the state. This has since become the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Program Act; it is no longer a pilot program and has become a permanent part of Illinois law.

To receive a medical marijuana card in Illinois, you need to be diagnosed with one of several qualifying conditions. The list of qualifying diagnoses is extensive, including Alzheimer’s disease, autism, cancer, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, HIV/AIDS, lupus, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and many more. Unsure whether you qualify? Your physician will be able to assist you.

If you qualify, your physician will complete a Physician Written Certification. The patient will submit this certification alongside their application, current residency, and ID information. If accepted, the patient will be required to renew their medical marijuana card each year—however, in terms of payment, you’ll be able to choose among a one-year, two-year, and three-year registry card.
