Good Intentions Medical Marijuana Clinic In Chicago Readies For Wicker Park Opening
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, August, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
The ink on Illinois' newly-signed medical marijuana bill has barely dried and already, Chicago's first medical marijuana clinic is ready to roll.
Clinic president Tammy Jacobi told Crain's Chicago Business Good Intentions LLC at 1723 N. Ashland Ave. in Wicker Park will start accepting its first patients Aug. 7.
"We're very excited about it," Jacobi said. "We're already getting calls from people asking if they can invest.
Jacobi, a registered nurse who has run a similar clinic on the lakeshore town of Saugatuck, Mich. since 2011 said Good Intentions will not grow, sell or dispense marijuana. Rather, the clinic's role will be to help would-be users of medical marijuana develop a relationship before the Jan. 1 2014 effective date.
Jacobi is firing up the clinic now since the medical marijuana bill passed before June 1; under Illinois law, if the bill has no immediate effective date, it goes into effect Jan. 1 of the following year.
DNAinfo Chicago reports that while clinics like Good Intentions can't dispense marijuana, patients can get prescriptions for pot from a doctor there.
State law stipulates there can only be 60 actual marijuana dispensaries throughout Illinois and the location of where they'll be distributed is still unknown.
The state's new law is among the strictest in the nation and stipulates doctors may only approve medical marijuana use for patients with whom they have an existing relationship.

Man gets life in prison for trafficking marijuana
Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
A Gordon man received life in prison after he pleaded guilty to trafficking $300,000 worth of marijuana in Houston County.
District Attorney Doug Valeska said 41-year-old Steven Craig Hooven pleaded guilty to a felony trafficking marijuana charge in front of Circuit Court Judge Brad Mendheim.
Valeska said Hooven received an enhanced sentence, of life in prison, because of three prior felony convictions out of Tennessee.
Houston County Sheriff’s investigators arrested Hooven on Aug. 16, 2012, on the marijuana trafficking charge.
The charge stemmed from a patrol deputy making a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Hooven for speeding on State Line Road near Cottonwood and US 231 South.
The traffic stop led investigators with the Houston County Sheriff’s narcotics unit to get a search warrant for Hooven’s home where they discovered a large indoor marijuana growing operation.
