House approves medical marijuana bill, which now goes to Senate

On Tuesday, almost 250 physicians gathered at a news conference in Chicago to urge state lawmakers to legalize marijuana use for patients with serious illnesses. As our readers know, the legal status of marijuana is somewhat precarious, with more and more states approving use of the drug medical purposes, and two states having legalized its recreational use.

Illinois lawmakers to consider controversial medical marijuana bill

Among the issues to be tackled by Illinois lawmakers in the coming weeks is the possibility of legalizing medical marijuana. As we've previously mentioned, the measure has been controversial among Illinois lawmakers.

Legalized recreational marijuana still long way off for Illinois

While seventeen states have already approved use of marijuana by people with certain medical conditions, there had been no states that approved marijuana for recreational use until Tuesday. Washington and Colorado, which both had ballot initiatives on the issue, both passed their measures. Those states are now waiting to hear how the federal government will respond to the measures.
