DES MOINES, Iowa – Authorities are working to make rules to guide the implementation of the medical cannabis oil legislation.

The law takes effect Tuesday but the DOT cards the users require won’t be ready until sometime this fall.

The Department of Public Health met Monday. No decisions were made but it was an opportunity to discussion how to properly implement the legislation.

Another meeting will be scheduled soon to include the public. Decisions are set to be made then.

The governor signed the legislation last month allowing Iowans to use the oil based form of marijuana in a limited scope.

The oil is said to help treat those with seizure disorders.
