DES MOINES, Iowa (KCRG) - In their first day back at the Iowa Capitol, the state senate passed legislation to expand Iowa’s medical marijuana program.

The bill passed 32 to 17 yesterday. Currently, the limit of THC someone can get in a medical cannabidiol product is 3-percent in Iowa.

The Senate bill allows people in Iowa's medical cannabis program to get up to 25 grams of THC every 90 days.

Those who support the expansion say the state's program is too stringent.

Opponents say more studies using CBD oil as a treatment are needed.
