Illinois Launches Website About New Medical Marijuana Law

If someone told you a couple years ago there would be a website run by the state of Illinois to help people smoke marijuana you’d probably think they were high.

Yet such a website is up and running now.

CBS 2’s Dorothy Tucker reports.

Julie Falco eats bits of a ginger snaps infused with marijuana at least three times a day. She discovered a few years ago it eases the pain of Multiple Sclerosis.

“As as soon as I wake up and try to get up on my walker, my legs are stiff as a board,” she says. “After I have my morning brownie or my morning cookie, that relaxes.”

Falco is among the advocates who fought for the legalization of medical marijuana. Not surprisingly, she’s a fan of a new state website, where potential patients can learn how to get a medical card.
