The State of Illinois accepted every petition we submitted because we’re knowledgable and hard-working”.
Good Intentions patients named in their petitions will each be submitting a written letter of intent to the Illinois Division of Medical Cannabis, informing the board of their desire to share their personal stories. Representatives from Good Intentions will accompany their patients as they appeal to the advisory board to add their conditions at the public hearing, which is scheduled for May 4 at the James R. Thompson Center in Chicago.
