Monday morning's hearing in Chicago will examine the state's four-year pilot project. The rules under consideration affect how adult patients with specific health conditions will be able to buy marijuana.

A second hearing will be held May 21 in Springfield.

The proposed rules were published in the Illinois Register on April 18, which marked the start of a formal rulemaking process and a public comment period.
