Marijuana was a big topic during this year’s Iowa Legislative session. A bill was passed that would have allowed the amount of THC—the ingredient in marijuana that gets you high—to be raised in medical marijuana. But Governor Kim Reynolds voted the bill. She tells the No Coast Network why.
“There’s a lot of data out there and a lot of research that shows the impact. A lot of people start just innocently with recreational marijuana and it leads to addiction and other problems and so, I just don’t think we want to rush into that. I’m just not in favor of recreational marijuana–at all.”
Reynolds says she’s fine with looking at the state’s medical marijuana laws, but is opposed to making recreational marijuana legal.
