Children and adults who suffer from epilepsy could soon find relief in medical marijuana under a bill signed Sunday by Gov. Pat Quinn.
During a ceremony at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the Democratic governor signed the law, which adds seizures to the list of conditions that can be treated with medical-grade cannabis.
Quinn called it a “life-saving law” and said medical marijuana could offer those suffering from seizures a “positive experience when it comes to daily living.”
“I think it’s very important that we move forward and extend the opportunity for this important life-saving law to go to all those who need it,” Quinn added.
