State lawmakers from both parties in Illinois have agreed to extend Illinois’ medical marijuana pilot program to July 2020, and expanded the list of qualifying conditions to include post-traumatic stress disorder and terminal illness.

Lawmakers must still take a formal vote on the measure, but are expected to approve it, the Chicago Tribune reported.
