SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Medical marijuana will soon become legal in Illinois.  Governor Pat Quinn is set to sign legislation Thursday making Illinois the 20th state to legalize marijuana.

The bill requires patients and caregivers to undergo background checks.  It also sets a 2.5 ounce limit per patient, per purchase at state-regulated dispensaries.

Marijuana would be grown inside 22 cultivation centers registered with the state.

The law takes effect January 1.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed
    to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider
    worries that they plainly don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out
    the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks
