S.1276 - Cannabidiol Research Expansion Act (2017-18)


Ernst and the law officers also briefly discussed marijuana, the legalization of which the senator said she is “adamantly against.” (October 2022)

While the Senator says she has supported the use of cannabis oil in the past, she says she is against the opening of those dispensaries, and the general use of medical marijuana.

"What I would like to see happen first is to see concrete medical evidence that this can be appropriately controlled and utilized in a very very controlled manner," says Ernst. "I would like to see additional research done on medical marijuana before we throw it at Iowans."
