On July 1 Governor Rauner signed a bill that extended the term of the Medical Cannabis Pilot Program into 2020. The bill also made a number of other changes to the current system, however. The new rules went into effect on August 1st and since many of the new regulations are only being sporadically reported here is a breakdown what is different in the program, as of today.
Salveo Health & Wellness will NOT have medicine available on Monday, November 2nd. We are ready to open, and growers have medicine available to ship, but the state is not ready to give them the go-ahead. It appears, based on the following post from the Illinois Department of Public Health, that the state will let everyone know a date by which dispensaries will be able to start serving patients.
Sorry for the delay, but it is 100% out of our control. We will continue to update this website and our Facebook page with additional information. As always, feel free to call us at 309-647-9333.
Please be advised that the State of Illinois will soon announce a state-wide start date for sales of medical cannabis at registered dispensaries. At this time, the Department of Public Health requests that qualifying patients and caregivers DO NOT CALL for information about when dispensaries will begin sales. An announcement will be posted on the website for the Illinois Medical Cannabis Pilot Program as well as the website for the Department of Public Health
