Iowa Marijuana Laws Made Easy for You
Iowa: The Hawkeye State that Can’t See Marijuana Reform
Much like the conservative state of Indiana, Iowa marijuana laws are pretty strict, which is weird, since both of these states are bordering the almost cannabis-friendly Indiana. Attempts to decriminalize the plant have failed since the 70s, most recently in 2014 and 2015. There isn’t any medical marijuana in Iowa either – only CBD oil, which has also seen problems, after law enforcement started seizing CBD oil that didn’t fit certain specifications. Is marijuana legal in Iowa? Nope, and it doesn’t seem like many lawmakers want it to be.
Current Legal Status in Iowa
- Medical Marijuana in Iowa: Still illegal, CBD only
- Recreational Iowa Marijuana Laws: Lowest offense is still a misdemeanor
- Policy group(s) active in state: Weedpress (not a policy group but important for policy), Iowans for Medical Marijuana
- Top brand(s) based in state: None
- Tax revenue generated by legalization of any marijuana: $0, because it’s still Schedule I
Right now, efforts to get medical marijuana in Iowa approved, and efforts to ease the Iowa marijuana laws towards decriminalization, both have a ton of bipartisan support in the state’s senate. There could be changes made in the coming years, but not without vocal support from the people.
