OPEN A DISPENSARY IN IOWA
Iowa’s medical marijuana law that passed on July 1, 2014 gives a limited class of individuals with intractable epilepsy and their caregivers an affirmative and complete defense to any state criminal charges arising out of their use of possession of cannabidiol extract. This law prohibits in-state production or access to cannabidol, meaning qualifying patients can only legally obtain their medicine from out of state.
