The Iowa Senate passed a bill Thursday that would allow a limited use of medical marijuana in the state.

The bill passed with a vote of 36 to 12. It would allow parents to obtain a state-issued identification card to possess and use the oil without the fear of prosecution.

The oil, which contains low amounts of THC, can be used to treat children who suffer from seizures.

Supporters say the bill offers a new form of treatment without the risk of abuse by others.

The bill now goes to the House for consideration.

    I give props to Iowa Cop Sen Sodders who wants to expand medical marijuana patient rights/laws in Iowa. .he was the only one of all the lawmakers today who mentioned expansion of the bill. He is not only a Republican but also a Law Enforcement Officer in Iowa, the ANTI-CLEL… when the first legal drop of oil hits Iowa, by then the Feds may do the work for the rest of us medical marijuana patients with MS, Cancer, HIV, crohn’s disease and various other ailments remaining as patients out of time…..
