Effective Immediately – Elimination of Medical Cannabis Fingerprinting

Congratulations Patients and Caregivers! Effective August 28th, 2018 you no longer have to submit fingerprints and background checks to the Illinois Department of Public Health to obtain your Medical Cannabis card. This is a huge step for the Medical Cannabis community and we hope that this makes the process easier for everyone. 

The director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, Dr. Nirav Shah, said “the elimination of background checks and fingerprinting for applicants goes into effect immediately, and all patients may now get provisional approval to buy medical marijuana immediately upon receiving a receipt for payment from the state health department.”1

For those that used our service, thank you for giving Biometric Impressions Corp the opportunity to be your vendor across the State of Illinois. We enjoyed making the hardest part of the application process, the easiest part for you. If you used or were planning on using our service for the Medical Cannabis Program, please remember Biometric Impressions Corp for any other fingerprinting service needs that you may have. 

Thank you for trusting the #1 fingerprint company in Illinois and congratulations once again!
