Medical Cannabis Bill Doesn't Go Far Enough For Iowa Families
3 days ago
The Iowa House & Senate have adjourned for the year after passing several last minute pieces of legislation, including a medical cannabis compromise passed with bipartisan majorities in both chambers. The new bill theoretically covers nine conditions, but as the legislation only allows cannabis oil with a low percentage of THC, Iowans with eight of those conditions will be left needing medicinal cannabis that is not covered. BleedingHeartland.com founder Laura Belin says despite this, Republicans can now claim to have done something on the issue & will consequently face less pressure to pass a meaningful medical cannabis bill during the 2018 legislative session. Laura Belin joins Des Moines FM host Chance Dorland to discuss the recent medical cannabis bill & how it doesn't go far enough to help Iowans in need of the medical benefits available to Americans in other states.
