The role of the budtender in Illinois’ medical marijuana pilot program

Illinois’ medical marijuana pilot program is already two years old and so far there haven't been any pot sales...or even a harvest. When marijuana starts hitting the various dispensaries, only those eligible under the strict guidelines will be able to buy it. That’s where the so-called budtender comes into the picture. It’s a new line of work for our state’s newest industry. Clare Lane reports for WBEZ.(Associated Press/Brennan Linsley)
