Iowans at Risk of Losing Medical Marijuana if Lawmakers Allow Limited Program to Expire in July
Something really sad is going to happen in Iowa if lawmakers there don’t extend and expand the current medical marijuana program, which essentially allows residents to use CBD for the treatment of intractable epilepsy.
Without legislative action, the program expires on July 1 and Iowa’s 222 medical marijuana patients, many of whom are children, will be in trouble.
The program already has its problems because it does not provide an avenue for Iowans to obtain cannabidiol oil, or any medical marijuana products, in Iowa. Patients need to travel to states where it is produced. Unfortunately, not all states permit the sale of MMJ products to non-residents.
That’s why people like Cassie Helland are becoming anxious. Her 10-year-old son’s head-drop seizures completely stopped after two weeks of CBD oil treatments and never returned.

Israel’s Marijuana Export Plans Are Moving Along
The undisputed Old World leader in marijuana research, Israel’s plans to become the official cannabis dealer to the whole world are slowly becoming a tangible reality.
Last year, government ministers from health, public safety and (of course) trade gave initial approval to a plan that would see the country start exporting medical marijuana—the only country in the world to do so. Canada is currently the only other country with cannabis production sanctioned by the national government, but there is currently no international market for marijuana not handled by people with intimidating Instagram feeds.
Shipping marijuana around the world will require some cooperation from other countries—such as the United States, which has to date insisted loudly and stridently that states obey a 1961 United Nations convention that happens to ban such activities—but there’s also more domestic hurdles to clear.
