In this April 16, 2013 photo, Julie Falco, of Chicago, speaks at a news conference held by the Marijuana Policy Project in Chicago. A new Illinois law legalized medical marijuana, but until regulations are final, patients still can’t use cannabis without risking arrest. The Illinois Department of Public Health plans to post 48 pages of draft rules Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014. Falco is  a supporter of the new law who speaks openly about how she has used cannabis to control her pain from multiple sclerosis. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green, File)
