The Illinois General Assembly has approved legislation to extend the state's medical marijuana pilot program.
The House voted in favor of the bill Monday, and the Senate followed suit Tuesday. Gov. Bruce Rauner backs the measure, which would extend the program's end date from January 2018 to July 2020.
Under the legislation, post-traumatic stress disorder would also become newly eligible for medical marijuana treatment.
Illinois' medical marijuana pilot program already covers patients with specific debilitating medical conditions, such as cancer, multiple sclerosis and HIV/AIDS.
