Call your physician's office and inquire about their views on medical marijuana. If the physician does not plan to recommend MM or if you are uncomfortable in discussing this issue or want a new opinion, then request a list of your diagnoses and presecription medications
Check the Law by clicking the button above and see if you believe you have a qualifying condition or illness. Pay particular attention to Page 5 beginning at line 6, and also monitor online news updates as regulations about the Act are adopted.
Arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled first appointment and bring copies of your diagnoses, prescription medications and any other medical records you would like added to your patient file.
Thanks to legislation passed by the Illinois legislature and signed into law by Governor Pat Quinn, Illinois became the 20th state in the US to put into place a medical marijuana program effective January 1, 2014.
While many aspects as to how the law will be implemented have not been determined, we believe the Illinois law is clear in that patients must be diagnosed with a qualified disease or condition AND have a bonafide, ongoing relationship with a medical doctor who will recommend medical marijuana as part of that patient's care and/or treatment.
We encourage patients with a qualifying disease or condition to contact their primary physician as a first step to determine if medical marijuana might be right for you. If you do not have a primary physician, are uncomfortable in discussing this subject with your current doctor or are seeking a new opinion, we encourage you to contact us and make arrangements for an office visit.

"I founded Good Intentions because I believe strongly that medical marijuana is more than a safe and highly effective treatment for a wide array of illnesses and conditions -- I also believe its use is a Human Rights issue when it comes to legitimate medical therapy. I've been deeply committed to the cause of medical marijuana for many years and have seen first-hand its many benefits, first as a nurse and later through the Good Intentions clinic I opened in Michigan in 2011. I hope you'll take the time to review the information presented here, and I look forward to hearing from you if you think Good Intentions might be the right place for you."
