Illinois is continuing to approve patients to use medical marijuana, with about 100 more approval letters sent in September. 

The Illinois Department of Public Health announced Wednesday it has approved 3,100 patients to use medical marijuana in the state’s pilot program. That includes 16 children.

Medical marijuana growers say they will have products ready to sell later this month in licensed dispensaries. So far, dispensaries in Mundelein, Canton and Quincy are fully licensed and ready to open.

The health department said that about 4,000 people have submitted complete applications. The program began accepting application in September of 2014.
Qualifying patients pay an annual fee of $100 for a marijuana card and need a doctor’s written certification.
