Expansive Medical Cannabis Legislation Passes Senate Committee

April 26, 2018

ABI has been advocating for strong employer protections since initial discussions about legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes started. This week, members of the Iowa Senate Ways and Means Committee passed SF 2372, which would eliminate the THC limit for cannabidiol and expands the list of medical conditions eligible for cannabidiol. The bill also provides a sales tax exemption for the product. The new bill, SF 2405, is eligible for debate, and an amendment to the legislation is expected. ABI will continue to advocate for employer protections in the bill.
