Hey there. My name is Katelyn. I'm 22 and looking to get into medical marijuana. Well, that escalated quickly. While most people probably go straight to older people and cancer patients when they think of the typical medical marijuana user, there are actually a bunch of less-publicized ailments that can qualify you to pick up pot, which became legal in Illinois on Wednesday. People with glaucoma, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), dystonia or Crohn's disease are on the list too, among others.

Illinois rang in 2014 as the 20th state where medical marijuana is legal. But the nuts and bolts of the new state law will likely take legislators at least a year to hammer out. For people interested in becoming card-carrying medical marijuana users or helping grow the new pot industry the law creates, that could mean months of waiting. The state bill legalizing the use of marijuana and marijuana-infused products to treat health ailments and alleviate chronic symptoms took effect Wednesday.

You've heard the stoner arguments for legalizing pot: "Weed is 100 percent natural, dude. It's from the earth. Thomas Jefferson grew it, man. Thomas. Jefferson. " But lately the case for legalization and decriminalization of possession comes from entirely different camps, and they're using arguments with more finesse, research and economic impact than those tossed out at a party in your friend's smoke-filled basement.
