In medical marijuana battle, Wisconsin likely won't go the way of Illinois anytime soon

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, August, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-wisIllinois became the 20th state to legalize medical marijuana Thursday, joining Michigan as the second of Wisconsin’s neighboring states to do so.
 
Patients seeking treatment still face an uphill battle to make the drug legal for medicinal purposes in Wisconsin, but that’s not stopping several state Democrats from trying.
 
Rep. Chris Taylor, D-Madison, and Sen. Jon Erpenbach, D-Middleton, are co-sponsoring a bill that Taylor said is still in the drafting phase and should be ready to introduce in the fall legislative session.
 
Under the bill, medicinal marijuana could be prescribed to patients with cancer, glaucoma, AIDS-HIV, post traumatic stress disorder, seizures, severe pain and nausea, and muscle spasms.
 
Taylor said the bill would allow patients to grow up to 10 marijuana plants and have up to 3 ounces in their possession. Patients who choose not to grow their own would be able to purchase medicinal marijuana with a doctor’s prescription at state-regulated, non-profit “compassionate care centers.”
 
“It would be fairly tightly controlled,” Taylor said. “Given that, I would hope some Republicans would support this.”

Good Intentions Medical Marijuana Clinic In Chicago Readies For Wicker Park Opening

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, August, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
chicago-mmj-dispensariesThe 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.
