Revised Medical Cannabis Medical Legal Guidelines

ISMS has revised our Medical Cannabis medical legal guideline to comply with changes to Illinois law.

Here’s the scoop. Senate Bill 10 was signed into law in late June, modifying Illinois’ Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act.  ISMS-backed changes in the law impact the process of physicians certifying patients for medical cannabis.

Previously, physicians would certify that they believed the patient would benefit from the use of medical cannabis; now, physicians certify that a bona fide physician-patient relationship exists, and the patient has a qualifying condition.  New qualifying conditions were also added to the roster of debilitating medical conditions.
