Speech to Text for Expansion to medical cannabis

- people with qualifying conditions will be able to receive medical cannabis in iowa - and we're finding out that there could be less restrictions than initially planned. medical pot-vo-1 medical pot-vo-2 t-h-c is the component in cannabis that gets people high - and a new bill that's already passed the senate committee would remove the cap on the amount of t-h-c allowed. currently there is a 3- percent cap on the the amount of t-h-c allowed in medical cannabis - which those with the iowa department of public health say is the amount of t-h-c that was in pot smoked during the 70's. caitlin golle of nora springs says this is a good step for the state as long as people are medical pot-sot-1 medical pot-sot-2 as long as people are using it responsibly then it can't really do too much harm at all especially if people are getting notes from their doctor saying you can use this much and they want to use more as long as they are safe and consciously aware then it shouldn't be too bad. the bill would also exempt cannabis oil from sales tax and expand the conditions people can qualify with.
