Illinois Senate views marijuana as opioid alternative
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – Illinois lawmakers are turning to marijuana to fight opioid abuse.
The Senate voted 44-6 Thursday to allow doctors to prescribe medical marijuana as an alternative to opioids. Those addicted to opioids would also be eligible to apply for a medical card to use marijuana.
Sen. Don Harmon is the sponsor of the plan. The Oak Park Democrat says the measure would combat an opioid crisis “ravaging the state.”
