Illinois began sales of medical marijuana Nov. 9, 2015 as part of a four-year pilot program. In the two months that followed, 20 dispensaries opened across the state, 2,815 medical marijuana patients were served, and growers made over $1.5 million. The state of Illinois collected approximately $107,000 from the 7% medical marijuana tax.
