DES MOINES (KCRG) - Lawmakers in Iowa are trying to raise the amount of T-H-C levels in medical marijuana-- and expand the list of state-approved health conditions that can use it.

The new proposal would raise the cap on T-H-C levels from three percent to 13 percent.

Lawmakers argue that the current program doesn't do enough for those who really need it.

"Typically the last several years we have waited until the last minute to put out a medical cannabis bill that's not going to happen this year," said Republican Senator Brad Zaun, of Urbandale.

The bill is still in its early stages.

It could take several weeks before it ends up on the governor's desk.
