Iowa Board of Pharmacy votes on marijuana

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL)--  The Iowa Board of Pharmacy voted to take a step towards legalizing medical marijuana in the state.

The board intends to ask the legislature to approve a plan to reclassify marijuana as a Schedule 2 drug. This would put it in the same class as narcotics such as opiates and methadone.

A separate measure would have to pass the legislature to legalize marijuana for medical purposes. Right now, it is classified as a drug with almost no legal purposes.
