KCCI Des Moines News Here’s another new bill in favor of medical marijuana, posted by a Republican State Representative in Iowa. Story below in italics.

There appears to be growing momentum for medical marijuana, both in research and in legislation.

Medical marijuana is legal in the state of Nevada, and with the assistance of Weedmaps, you can find a marijuana dispensary in Las Vegas. Be sure to bring your medical marijuana card and a valid ID. We always encourage the responsible use of medical marijuana, and following all marijuana laws per each state.

“DES MOINES, Iowa —A major change in the Iowa Legislature could make medical marijuana legal in Iowa. A new bill set to be unveiled Tuesday would make it legal to grow medical marijuana, make cannabis oil and setup dispensaries in Iowa. It would also make it legal to carry marijuana across state lines.”

Republican legislators killed similar legislation last year. Now State Representative Peter Cownie (R) is sponsoring the new bill. The bill has already received support from West Des Moines Mayor Steve Gaer, whose daughter uses hemp oil to help with seizures.
