Iowa Bill Would Allow For A Therapeutic Medical Marijuana Research Program

A bill creating a medical marijuana therapeutic research program was introduced in the Iowa State Senate last Thursday.
Senate Bill 113 would permit state approved doctors to prescribe marijuana to treat patients under their care who suffer from multiple sclerosis, hyperparathyroidism, nail patella syndrome, AIDS, any condition with symptoms of chronic pain or spasms, nausea and glaucoma.
SB 113, sponsored by Sens. Joe Bolkcom (D-23), Robert Dvorsky (D-25) and Johnie Hammond (D-31), has been referred to the Senate Human Resources Committee.
