Illinois officials are planning to hold at least 3 town hall meetings to discuss the new medical marijuana program in that state.
The new law doesn’t allow patients to grow their own marijuana.
There will be a limited number of cultivation permits issued to businesses around the state.
There will be a competitive two-week application process, which is expected to start Sept. 8.
Applicants will be scored to help determine who will get a license.
The first town hall meeting will be Thursday in the southern Illinois city of Collinsville, according to the state program’s website.
That meeting starts at 9:30 a.m. at the Kenneth Hall State Regional Office Building.
Other meetings are set for Aug. 18 in Peoria and Aug. 20 in Chicago.
