Medical marijuana use will be legal in Illinois beginning on January 1, 2014.
People who suffer from cancer, HIV/AIDs, multiple sclerosis, ALS, lupus, muscular dystrophy, and many other serious illnesses and diseases will be able to buy up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana every two weeks from state-run dispensaries.
Growing your own marijuana will still be illegal.
