You can get your Illinois Medical Cannabis Card in your own backyard in Oak Lawn at Educated Alternative! We are currently in the Top 4 places to get a cannabis card based on a reader poll but we are in the running to be #1. Voting ends Oct. 21st so if you’ve already seen us please vote, this poll is for “Best of Chicago 2019” and is put on by The Chicago Reader. Please use the link below to vote if you’re interested, the cannabis categories are in Section 3 of 8 and you do not need to vote every category to submit.


There have been so many changes to the Illinois Medical Cannabis Program recently that its worth talking about. Remember, even though cannabis will be legal for adult use starting January 2020 it will be taxed at 25% to 40% depending on what and where you purchase and availability will be limited based on medical patient needs. (Medical patients also pay less than 2% tax regardless of what they get or where they get it!)

What other changes have happened for becoming a medical patient?

– No more background checks, people with felonies can now apply

– New conditions have been added, its easier than ever to qualify

– Starting January 1st patients will be able to legally grow their own medicine

– New retiree groups added to reduced State fee list

– You can qualify for a cannabis card if you take any opiate

– Pediatric patients can have their medicine administered at school

– The wait time to get your card is less than 48hrs
