DES MOINES, IA – Today, Libertarian Party of Iowa Chair, Keith Laube, released the following statement in support of the proposed medical cannabis bill:

Iowa Libertarians support a bill originating in the State House that shows common sense and compassion to Iowans with epilepsy and other debilitating diseases. The bill would enable the production and distribution of cannabis oil in Iowa.

The bill would allow doctors to prescribe the oil to help patients. Currently many Iowa families leave the state for treatment or are contemplating permanently leaving Iowa so their children and family members can obtain the treatment they need. We encourage you to contact your State Representative to vote for this bill.
