SmithAmundsen is pleased to invite you to join us for a timely presentation on the proposed regulations under the Illinois Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act. The presentation will be followed by a cocktail reception and networking.

In January 2014, the Illinois Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act went into effect, making Illinois the 20th U.S. state to legalize marijuana for certain medical uses. Over the last several months, state officials have been working to develop regulations implementing the legalization of medical marijuana. Our panelists, Robert Morgan of the Illinois Department of Public Health, Raymond Watson of the Illinois Department of Agriculture, and Bridget Carlson of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, will discuss the proposed regulations, the rule-making process, and the enforcement process, among other topics. We will also be joined by a risk management expert to discuss industry efforts to establish a self-insurance program
