Comments

Regarding a bill intented to expand acess to medical marijuana: 

The state legislature attempted to expand the use of medical marijuana this year by passing a bill that would have allowed dispensaries to sell more potent products, but it was vetoed by Gov. Kim Reynolds. Medical cannabis advocates said at the meeting that restrictions to Iowa’s program could lead patients to take greater risks to achieve the relief they believe marijuana can provide. “Either they are compelled to break Iowa law by obtaining cannabis from Colorado or Illinois or self-medicate in lieu of real medical options like we have here in Iowa,” said State Sen. Claire Celsi, D-Des Moines. 8/2/19
