New data from the Illinois Department of Public Health shows that medical marijuana use in the state has risen 83% this year, with more than 46,000 patients actively using cannabis. 

The increase translates to roughly $12 million in cannabis products a month for the state’s 55 licensed dispensaries. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is now the most common condition being treated, after being approved for prescription in 2016. 

Nearly 75 percent of the statewide registered medical marijuana patients are 40 years old or older. 

The program is expected to continue to grow in the coming years, as Governor Bruce Rauner recently signed a measure that will allow doctors to prescribe medical marijuana instead of opioid painkillers. That same law also removed fingerprint and background checks for potential patients, as well as allowed patients to apply for the program online, removing many of the obstacles for many to join.
