1. Overview of the Firearm Owner's Identification Card
2. FOID Eligibility and the Application Process
If you possess an MML, are a caregiver pursuant to the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act, and/or otherwise use cannabis consistent with Illinois law, your FOID Card will not be revoked nor your FOID application denied. Medical Marijuana Licenses are State-issued and cannot result in the denial of any right or privilege.
However, under Federal law, you are subject to restrictions that prohibit you from aquiring or possessing firearms and firearms ammunition. These restrictions are pusuant to the Gun Control Act of 1968, specifically, 18 U.S.C. §922, and remain in effect until the revocation or relinquishment of your medical cannabis card or until one year after you last used cannabis, whichever is later.
