Comments

“We wanted to make sure small producers have the opportunity to enjoy [hemp] and not a couple of large companies come in and contract it out," said Sen. Zach Wahls, D-Coralville. (3/14/19)

"We should expand Iowa’s current medical cannabis law. My mother, Terry, suffers from multiple sclerosis, a chronic disease for which cannabis could provide significant relief. Our current law is so strict as to be ineffectual, so I believe it should be expanded. For recreational cannabis, though the medical research is clear that cannabis is no more dangerous than alcohol or cigarettes, I would carefully explore the impact of legalization with input from all stakeholders including law enforcement." (2018)
