I have been putting off completing my Illinois mmj application. So much bullshit, unnecessary personal information they want faxed in and the fingerprinting. I had gotten the fingerprinting done months ago and just read it's supposed to be done within 10 days of submitting the application. Seems like they designed these rules so they wouldn't get ANY applicants. They almost succeeded. The other issue is the price they're charging. I collect disability because of stage 4 colon cancer and there is no way I could afford even 1 ounce a month at $480.00 let alone the 2 I need to properly medicate.And we can't grow our own! That is illegal.So where does that leave me and all the others in the same boat as me and I bet there's a lot more of them than the 3,300 that applied. Anyway I've decided to hold off on the application. I might just watch it for 6 months or a year.Perhaps a few Illinois lawmakers will get their heads out of their asses and ease up on the rules and fees.Perhaps the price will come down, but I'm not going to get my hopes up,this Is Illinois after all. Maybe people should start growing victory gardens again. Cannabis victory gardens.You will feel proud that you are self sufficient, you can strive for and achieve quality, you won't suffer that nagging feeling of running out, and you don't have to go through the hassle of getting a connect or finding a new connect. When you realize how much it would have cost you to buy what you grew you will wish you had done it sooner. I just want to leave saying. I'm not going to be a good little, law abiding Illinois mmj patient and abide by their whole new set of ridiculous, draconian rules. I saw on the news a dispensary owner saying they were afraid if they lowered patients would sell it on the streets for more. How about some people might be driven to engage in illegal activity just to get the cash needed to buy their Illinois medical marijuana. Oh,maybe that's why they fingerprint us.As a deterrent. Pretty scary Illinois is.Layer upon Layer of dark,corrupt goings on I feel for the cannabis entrepreneurs that might not do as well as they first expected although at the time everyone thought things were moving a lot faster and legalization was just around the corner, and that there was millions or billions to be made.
