House bill seeks to add more medical marijuana dispensaries in Iowa – Des Moines Register

A bill advancing through the Iowa Legislature would allow for more dispensaries to sell medical marijuana in Iowa.

House Study Bill 684 would increase the maximum number of dispensaries in the Iowa Medical Cannabidiol program to 10, changing the portion of Iowa Code that currently caps that total number at five.

License holders would only be able to hold three medical cannabidiol dispensary licenses under this legislation, a move advocates called an arbitrary condition that could limit businesses from expanding in the state’s marketplace.

A House subcommittee advanced the bill by unanimous vote, 3-0, for consideration by a full committee on Tuesday.
