Are there restrictions on where a patient can possess or consume medical cannabis?
Patients may not possess or consume cannabis on a school bus, school grounds, or in a correctional facility. Likewise, patients may not possess or consume cannabis in a private residence that is used to provide child care or a day care service, and they may not possess it in a vehicle unless it is secured in a sealed, tamper-evident container that is inaccessible while the vehicle is moving. As with alcohol and prescription drugs, patients may not operate or be in control of a vehicle while impaired. Patients are also prohibited from consuming medical cannabis in a public place, near anyone under the age of 18, or where doing so would violate the Smoke Free Illinois Act.
