Illinois Approves First Medical Marijuana Patients

The state of Illinois has begun sending approval letters to the first patients to apply for legalized medical marijuana. The news was confirmed by Illinois Department of Public Health spokeswoman Melaney Arnold.

While only a dozen or so letters have been sent as of Sept. 29, thousands of prospective patients have applied since applications began being accepted at the beginning of the month.

Applications are only being accepted from patients with last names A through L through the end of October. Patients with last names M through Z will be able to apply beginning in November. It is expected that a rolling application process for all patients will begin in 2015.
