Iowa: Lawmakers Approve Medical Cannabis Expansion Legislation

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Originally published at blog.NORML.org < !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd”>

House and Senate lawmakers have approved legislation, House File 732, to expand the state’s medical cannabis access program. The measure now awaits action from Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds.

Under existing law, licensed dispensaries may only dispense plant-derived extracts possessing CBD and no more than three percent THC. House Fill 732 eliminates the THC cap. It also permits physician assistants and/or advanced registered nurses to make medical cannabis recommendations, and expands the pool of patients eligible for cannabis therapy to include those with “severe or chronic” pain.

The new measure imposes restrictions regarding the total amount of THC a patient may possess in a 90-day period (25 grams). However, this limit may be waived at the advice of a health practitioner.

About 1,000 Iowans are currently authorized to access low-THC cannabis oils.
