Medical marijuana will be legal in Illinois beginning January 1, 2014, after Governor Pat Quinn signs the bill into law tomorrow, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Under the new law, a patient could be prescribed no more than 2.5 ounces of marijuana over a two week period and the patient and prescribing doctor must have had a prior and ongoing medical relationship.

Patients will buy the prescribed marijuana from one of 60 dispensing centers and will not be allowed to legally grow their own.
