SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - Candidates for Illinois governor cover a wide spectrum of opinions on allowing marijuana use for medical purposes.

Green Party candidate Rich Whitney backs general legalization of marijuana. He says he'd sign a bill to legalize medical marijuana as "a positive first step."

On the opposite end of the spectrum is Republican Sen. Bill Brady, who opposes any easing of rules on marijuana.

To Republican Sen. Kirk Dillard, enforcement is the key. He opposes medical marijuana, saying authorities are concerned about how they will police the law.

Andy McKenna, former Illinois Republican Party chairman, said he would have opposed legislation that legalizes medical marijuana.

DuPage County Board Chairman Bob Schillerstrom opposes the idea because of what he cites as a lack of research.
