Decriminalized

Cannabis in Illinois is decriminalized for recreational use and legally permitted for medical use. In July 2016, Illinois reduced punishment for under 10 grams of cannabis to a $100–200 fine, rather than a misdemeanor as previously. The law also sets the requirement for DWI at 5 nanograms of THC in the blood.

The Illinois General Assembly passed the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act in 2013. The law legalizes the use of medical cannabis in tightly controlled circumstances. In August 2013, Governor Patrick Quinn signed into law the state's medical marijuana program, which would take effect on January 1. making it the 20th state to do so. 

"Legally registered patients" may, with a prescription from a medical caregiver, apply for an ID card that allows the use of marijuana for medical purposes. The law lists over 30 specific medical conditions that may be legally treated using cannabis, and allows the Department of Public Health to add other conditions to the list via administrative rulemaking. Applications for patients, growers, and vendors began in September 2014.

As of June 2017, over 20,000 qualifying patients participate in the state's medical cannabis program. Since its inception in November 2015, retail sales from 53 authorized dispensaries have topped $67 million in Illinois.

    The Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act establishes a patient registry program, protects registered qualifying patients and registered designated caregivers from "arrest, prosecution, or denial of any right or privilege," and allows for the registration of cultivation centers and dispensing organizations. Once the act goes into effect, "a tax is imposed upon the privilege of cultivating medical cannabis at a rate of 7% of the sales price per ounce."
