OPEN A DISPENSARY IN IOWA

Program Overview:

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. 

However in May 12, 2017, Gov. Terry Brandstand signed H.F 524 (Act), legalizing the use of low-THC cannabis oil for qualified patients. The law also allows for marijuana businesses to provide patients with in-state access to the cannabis oil by December 1, 2018. The Department of Health has been tasked to regulate the program.

Under the new law, the state will be awarding up to two (2) Manufacturer Licenses and up to five (5) Dispensary Licenses.
