As more Illinoisans apply for and receive permission from the state to use marijuana as a medical necessity, Gov. Bruce Rauner put a stop to further expansion of the program for 11 conditions Sept. 10.
Rauner vetoed Senate Bill 39, which would have included post-traumatic stress disorder among the 39 other approved conditions, and the Illinois Department of Public Health said that 10 medical conditions recommended by the Medical Cannabis Advisory Board would not be added to the list of ailments for which marijuana is a legal treatment.
