Iowa Medical Professionals for Medical Cannabis Program
"We the undersigned medical professionals support a state regulated medical cannabis program during this year’s legislative session. Iowa would then join the many states that have shown that such a program can be administered without sanctioning of recreational use. The benefits to patients with cancer, wasting diseases, various neurologic conditions, and psychiatric disorders such as post-traumatic stress syndrome have been amply demonstrated in the medical literature. As such, we firmly believe that marijuana should be removed from Schedule I under the DEA's classification of a controlled substance, allowing its prescription for certified human uses and also it available for research purposes at the state’s medical institutions."
