Governor Reynolds vetoes medical marijuana bill

DES MOINES, Iowa (KCRG) -- Governor Kim Reynolds vetoed a bill that would have expanded medical cannabis access in Iowa. She announced the veto just about about 5 p.m. on Friday.

The bill would have raised the cap on the amount of THC allowed in medical marijuana. That's the chemical in cannabis that creates the high.

The Governor says she vetoed the legislation because it expanded CBD access too quickly. Iowa just legalized the production, sale and use of CBD two years ago.
