Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with vast experience in diagnosing & treating all neurological as well as all other health/medical conditions, and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns.

I see you are trying find out the procedure for obtaining a legal marijuana card (Medical marijuana card) in the state of Illinois. I am very familiar with this procedure, and I can certainly help you in this regard.

Please see 29 states including Illinois have approved MMJ (medical marijuana) use in one or other way, including for health purposes.

The procedure to obtain medical marijuana card legally is step by step like this;

1) See a physician who is authorized by department of health of a state medical board to practice medical marijuana (since you are a veteran you do not require a physician’s approval – please see in more detail later below)

2) If the dr approves then he/she is supposed to issue you a Patient certification which is basically the approval of the Dr for your eligibility of MMJ

3) You need to register online through the state official website for approval by the state government

4) If approved they mail the MMJ card or Registration ID to you

5) Purchase medical marijuana products from a registered organization's dispensing facility of that state OR Licensed dispensaries

Please find below a web link for application for MMJ in the state of Illinois where they have provided all the details regarding how to legally obtain medical marijuana card, and this article also mentions that veterans receiving health care at a VA facility do not to provide a physician written certification, instead provide medical records from the VA facility for the last 12 months;

These are some additional useful web links related to MMJ (Medical marijuana), and obtaining legal medical marijuana card;

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
