Pharmacy Board rejects request to legalize marijuana

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL)--The Iowa Pharmacy Board has rejected a request that it write the rules allowing marijuana to be used for medical purposes.

Tuesday, the board rejected the request from a marijuana activist.

A board member says since they are appointed, not elected, they shouldn't be writing the law.

In February, the board recommended that the legislature reclassify marijuana to allow its use for legitimate medical purposes.
