DES MOINES — The Iowa Senate has sent a significant message to the Iowa House. A bill that would let doctors to prescribe marijuana as treatment for Iowans who suffer from 18 chronic and debilitating conditions passed the Senate by a 45-5 vote.
Republican Senator Brad Zaun of Urbandale pleaded with Republicans in the House who are wary of this bill.
“Please,” Zaun said tonight. “…Eighty percent of Iowans support this.”
Zaun said cannabis can be “important medicine.”
