Can Medical Marijuana Patients Own Guns?

The rules will govern how Illinois’ new medical marijuana law will be implemented. The law will allow patients who qualify to purchase up to 2.5 ounces of pot every two weeks. Earlier this year, the state departments of Agriculture, Public Health and Financial and Professional Regulation proposed 226 pages of rules. They cover everything from requiring 24-hour video surveillance of marijuana businesses to banning drive-through and delivery service. Numerous prospective business operators have criticized the high fees required to open a grow house or dispensary. Regulators didn’t lower any of those fees but raised the requirement for liquid assets to open a grow center to $500,000 from $250,000.
