Illinois officials are planning three town hall meetings to answer questions about the application process for the state’s new medical marijuana program.

Officials announced this week that the first town hall meeting will be Thursday in the southern Illinois city of Collinsville. It starts at 9:30 a.m. at the Kenneth Hall State Regional Office Building.

Meetings are set for August 18th in Peoria and August 20th in Chicago.

Patients, their caregivers, growers and retailers all will be required to submit applications for state approval. The state posted application forms online Friday for patients and caregivers, while telling aspiring marijuana business owners that the application process for them would likely start September 8th.

More details and answers to frequently asked questions can be found at the program’s website.
