About Cannabis in Naperville
Naperville is a city in DuPage and Will counties in the U.S. state of Illinois, and a suburb of Chicago. Located 28 miles west of Chicago, Naperville was founded in 1831 and developed as the fourth-largest city in Illinois. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 141,853, which was estimated to have increased to 147,682 by 2017.
In a 2010 study assessing cities with populations exceeding 75,000, Naperville was ranked as the wealthiest city in the Midwest and the eleventh wealthiest in the nation. It was ranked among the nation’s safest cities by USA Today and Business Insider. Naperville was voted the second-best place to live in the United States by Money magazine in 2006 and it was rated first on the list of best cities for early retirement in 2013 by Kiplinger. In 2015, it was named as one of the most educated large cities in America with populations over 50,000.
In Illinois, medical cannabis is legal pot that’s bought by a qualifying patient or caregiver from a licensed retailer. In August 2013, Former Gov. Pat Quinn signed the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act, which legalized the cultivation, sale and use of medical pot in the state. Illinois started accepting applications for patients, vendors and growers in September 2014, and dispensaries started doling out grass the following November. Gov. Bruce Rauner later signed a bill in July 2016 that extended the state’s medical pot program until 2020.
Where Do I Buy Medical Marijuana in Naperville, Illinois
To qualify for a medical marijuana card, it’s a 4 step process. You’ll book an appointment to see a Veriheal doctor who will evaluate your ailments and determine if you qualify for medical cannabis treatment. Patients are also required to submit fingerprints to the state from which they need to submit the proper fingerprint form within 30 days of having them taken. It is also required for patients to see the doctor for a follow up visit. With Veriheal, this follow up can be online through video, so no need to actually come in again. Finally, after you’ve had two consultations and your fingerprints taken, you will submit your application to the state.
Once a patient has been approved for the state’s medical program, they can go to the dispensary they selected during the application process to buy cannabis.
