Governor Quinn Signs Medical Marijuana Into Law in Illinois

With lots of restrictions, naturally


As expected Gov. Pat Quinn on Thursday signed legislation laced with strict regulations to make Illinois the 20th state to legalize medical marijuana.

"I feel that this is something, whatever faith we practice, we all believe that helping those who are sick, helping them recover and also helping them deal with pain, that's a tenet in every faith and every religion," Quinn said Thursday. "So we're really I think doing the right thing in Illinois."
