To Expand, or Not to Expand? That's the Question!

Since the veto of a bill to expand access to Iowa's medical Cannabidiol (mCBD) program and the decision to legalize recreational marijuana in Illinois, there has been a lot of buzz about Iowa's laws, and what the Iowa Legislature should do when it comes back into session on January 13, 2020.

Do you think Iowa should leave its cannabidiol (oil-only) program alone? Should it expand it to include more conditions and higher THC levels (the stuff that gets you "high")?  Should we go to a full-blown medical cannabis program, which allows the use of the entire plant (smoking, vaping, gummies, baked goods, tinctures, as well as oil)?  Or should Iowa follow suit with Illinois and legalize cannabis use for recreational purposes?
