The Illinois Department of Public Health posted the updated information on its website Tuesday. The new material includes a form physicians must use to certify that a patient has a qualifying health condition. Doctors no longer need to recommend marijuana, but must certify a patient’s diagnosis.
An updated patient application is available, as is new information on how patients who are terminally ill can apply for a medical marijuana card.
The department has posted updated information for current patients on renewing their marijuana cards. The department says it will mail a letter with renewal information to registered cardholders 90 days before their cards expire.
