Just before the Iowa Legislature’s session adjourned on Saturday, the Senate passed a bill to expand Iowa’s nascent medical marijuana program. It now heads to Gov. Kim Reynold’s desk.
The bill — HF 732 — would remove the three percent cap of THC in medical marijuana products and instead institute a per-person limit of 25 grams every 90 days. It would also expand the patient pool by allowing additional health professionals such as nurse practitioners and physician’s assistants to recommend medical marijuana. Finally, it would relax a restrictive definition of which pain patients can qualify.
These changes would significantly improve Iowa’s medical marijuana program, so please contact Gov. Reynolds today. After you have contacted her, please spread the word by forwarding this email to friends and family or by sharing the action link on social media.
