SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WLS) -- Governor Bruce Rauner has changed his mind and is now in favor of expanding medical marijuana.

Sales in Illinois started last year as part of a three-year pilot program.

Now Governor Rauner wants to extend it for two more years and add more qualifying health conditions. The expanded list of conditions includes post-traumatic stress syndrome and terminal illness.
