Iowa governor willing to renew law allowing use of cannabis oil – Cannabis News
Governor Terry Branstad remains opposed to legalizing marijuana for recreational use in Iowa, but Branstad says he’s willing to work with advocates worried about the soon-to-end Iowa law that decriminalized possession of cannabis oil for treatment of chronic epilepsy.
“We don’t want people to lose something they think will be helpful or that has been helpful to members of their family,” Branstad says.
