It requires a 150 dollar annual fee and they must have your fingerprints on file.What a hassle,why even have medical marijuana if you can't treat it like other medicines?More dangerous pharmaceutical drugs such as oxycontin,xanax,or ritalin don't require outrageous fees or peoples fingerprints.It's utterly insane to pass a law that treats people that have been diagnosed with cancer or AIDS that needs medical marijuana like criminals.While the rest of the country takes the initiative and moves forward,the people of Illinois are stuck with politicians that are more concerned about pleasing Chicago and Rahm Emanuel's cock than they are about the well being of terminally ill patients.I hope Illinoisans will wise up and vote out the politicians who endorsed these laws that discourages terminally ill patients from getting the medicine they need in the 2014 midterm election.

Yeah you can be a drunk and have a gun but if you blow a little weed you give up your gun rights, they should make the same stipulations with alcohol more people commit gun crimes while drunk than sober.

If they don't care about people that are terminally ill then they don't care about anybody and will ignore what is best for the state of Illinois just so they can satisfy lobbyist and a few hardcore liberals in Chicago.

No one is against the terminally ill or anyone recovering under chemo or radiation. What people are trying to prevent is medical MJ getting out to those who aren't sick, especially young people. The prescribed medical MJ movement is being hampered by the stoners pushing for anybody/anywhere/anytime legalization. The public can tolerate the medical use but not the other.

Kids get marijuana just fine whether medical marijuana is legal or not.I'm not sure if you're aware of this but the "war on drugs" has been a complete failure and thousands of tons of marijuana is smuggled across the country annually.The public does tolerate it because people are doing it whether it's legal or not,55% of this country thinks marijuana should be legal and that number is growing.I'd rather have kids smoke marijuana and maintain their ability to reason than drink whiskey,pass out,get raped,and then see video of the rape posted on the internet.Politicians want to treat marijuana like its more powerful than heroin but they don't mind that alcohol is killing so many people and destroying so many lives....now that's hypocrisy.

..........Legal to smoke and possess small amounts but it will still be a CLASS I narcotic under Federal laws and will have to be controlled by the ATF and DEA. Even if "legal" to smoke you still couldn't have it in your system at work or while driving which that 55% probably hasn't thought about.

Thats exactly why federal government needs to change the law,so there is absolutely no conflict with states that legalize marijuana whether for recreation,medicinal or both.It's absolutely insane that the federal government actually thinks marijuana is as bad as heroin and methamphetamine and labels it a schedule1 drug.Marijuana doesn't kill people or destroy their lives but heroin,alcohol,tobacco,and meth do.Having it in your system and being under the influence are two completely different things.I think the 55% have given it more thought than you have.

Oh really? Having it in your system at work will get you fired if you work in a place that has any kind of drug policy. Having it in your system after a work related injury restricts any settlement other than basic care to patch you up. Having it in your system after a traffic accident can put blame back on you under "contributory negligence" even though it's the other guy's fault. There is no test to tell exactly when you smoked so that's why the rules are against you if the MJ shows up in your system. It's entirely up to you whether you want to face the consequences of what happens when you get caught.

Lots of marijuana users get drug tested all the time and pass because they know how to trick the test but you believe what you want

You don't trick the test when you get called in for an on the spot random test. Many companies are using the regular test plus the hair follicle test and they have the testing lab come to the work site. You will not trick those.. After an on job accident, there's no time to take a detox or blocker as you're tested the minute you arrive for treatment. Believe what YOU want but be prepared for what you're going to do when you get caught and have that on your records.

Yeah and I know people that are prepared for those situations,they keep stuff that makes them pass on them or in their vehicle so they can access it quickly,they even make friends with certain people and those people will tell him when their going to get tested,you live in a make believe world.I suppose you're going to tell me that no one smokes marijuana because it is illegal.Just because there is a policy or laws doesn't mean there isn't ways around them,ffs look at all the gun laws in Chicago and despite all those gun laws it's still more dangerous than Afghanistan,they had over 500 homicides by firearms in 2012....yeah that whole liberal mentality that "more laws = more safety" is complete utter bullshit.

That's why the surprise tests are more accurate. You are escorted from your station or position straight to the restroom with the testing lab tech WITHOUT going to your locker or car. When they also combine the pee test with the follicle test, both have to match. The tests will show a negative and pass but will show "blockers"," detox agents", " watered", or" incomplete". This sets you for another surprise retest. The people running the labs aren't stupid and that's why they are contracted instead of a company doing it on their own to weed out employees breaking company rules.
