In 2013 the Illinois General Assembly passed the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act. After governor Patrick Quinn signed the program into law, Illinois became the 20th state to legalize cannabis. In 2019, legislation was signed into law that again expanded the medical cannabis program in Illinois. Governor J.B. Pritzker signed the law which added additional qualifying conditions including chronic pain. Also, in 2019 Illinois passed the Illinois Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act which legalized recreation cannabis and became the 11th state to do so.

Only Doctors of Medicine, Doctors of Osteopathy, Advance Practice Registered Nurses – Full Practice Authority, Advance Practice Nurses, and Physicians Assistants can complete a certification for a debilitating medical condition for qualifying patients. All qualifying patients who apply to the Illinois MMJ registry must have their debilitating medical condition certified once every three years or when their registry identification card expires. Patients must also register with Illinois Department of Public Health Medical Cannabis Patient Program before legally possessing and purchasing medicinal cannabis.
