The state is now accepting medical marijuana applications from patients whose last names begin with A through L.  Those who are planning to apply will need to have a prescription from their doctor.  They'll also need to get a background check.

The Illinois Department of Health will have up to 30-days to review the application. Patients who are approved will be allowed to get up two-and-a-half ounces of medical marijuana every two weeks.
