Iowa Judge Asks Pharmacy Board to Look at Marijuana
Advertisements [?]
A Polk County judge says a state pharmacy board must consider whether marijuana has accepted medical uses. Thursday's ruling Judge Joel Novak doesn't legalize medical marijuana in Iowa, but it requires the Iowa Board of Pharmacy to consider whether it's properly classified as a Schedule I substance.

To be classified as Schedule I, a drug must have a high potential for abuse and no safe medical use within the U.S. Last summer, a group, including the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa, petitioned the pharmacy board to remove marijuana from the Schedule I classification. The board ruled against the
petition last fall and the ACLU appealed.

The judge's ruling says the board must review the classification and decide whether marijuana has an accepted medical use.
