Iowa officials are asking their Minnesota counterparts whether residents of the Hawkeye State can obtain medical marijuana through Minnesota’s program. Iowa decriminalized possession of cannabis oil two years ago for treatment of chronic epilepsy and Republican Representative Zach Nunn from Bondurant says they’re concerned because a number of Iowans are ordering it through the mail. Nunn says it’s very difficult to know what the quality is, “and that’s scary for not only patients, but for caregivers and parents.” Nunn notes the quality of cannabis oil is monitored at Minnesota’s state-run dispensaries. He says there would be a benefit for Minnesota also, because the program has been expensive to set up and run. But some Iowans say relying on Minnesota won’t adequately address issues of access to medical marijuana. The nearest dispensary to the border is in Rochester, about 40 miles north.
