Clel Baudler, R- Greenfield, filed House Study Bill 132 to expand Iowa's limited medical cannabis bill that is set to repeal July 1. Without a new program to take it's place, Iowa's patients are getting nervous.
This bill would allow for growth, distribution and dispensing within the state's borders and leave it up to the University of Iowa's Carver College of Medicine to decide on which conditions to add to qualifying conditions.
However, it caps the THC percentage at just 3% which may not help many of the people this bill is intended to help. This bill also leaves cannabis classified as a Schedule 1 controlled substance.
The Des Moines Register wrote an article about it as well. You can read that here:
