MARIJUANA BILL: Removes Medical References

Synthetic Marijuana

The Iowa House approved a bill Monday that removes all medical references to marijuana from Iowa law.

The bill redefines marijuana as a schedule one drug only, which means it is Illegal everywhere in the state.

Current laws list it as both a schedule one and schedule two drug, meaning it could have some medicinal purpose.

The bill passed with bi-partisan support.

Earlier this year House Democrat Bruce Hunter introduced a bill that would have legalized medicinal marijuana in the state, but it failed to make it out of committee.
