Illinois Mmj Any News?

Discussion in 'Marijuana News' started by budjones, Jun 18, 2013.

  1. I cant find info on them. I know its been a month since they sent the MMJ bill to there Gov to sign and if he did not sign in 30 days it would be come law. Has anyone here heard any info on there mmj bill? Thanks.

  2. We're still waiting on Governor that is Quinn.
    He basically said in an interview that he's not going to sign the bill, but he won't veto it either.
    So we have to wait for the end of the 60 day period before the bill goes through.
    Spineless bastard...
  4. Just to clarify doormouse's comment.....
    The bill passed the Illinois Senate on May 17th....but the bill wasn't "Officially" delivered to Governor Jello until June 5th
    So June 5th is the date we start counting the 60 days from......
    The downside to Governor Quinn not signing the bill into law right away and instead allowing the bill to become law without his signature after the 60 day wait, is that the bill then gives the various government departments involved in the regulation up to 180 days to get their act together (forms, fee schedules, licenses, etc...)
    Which means that it's possible that if you want to be a licensed grower, you won't even be able to start the application process until some time in December......which mean the dispensaries won't have product until some time in May??
    This is why I send an email once a week asking when is he going to sign the bill.....
  5. So pretty much August fourth it will become law
  6. What is the law, specifically? I heard it was for medical use but only under very strict circumstances. Does anyone know exactly what conditions they are talking about?
