Branstad Promises To Sign Medical Marijuana Bill

Branstad Promises To Sign Medical Marijuana Bill

Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad says he'll sign a bill legalizing the use of oil derived from marijuana to treat chronic epilepsy but hasn't made a decision on legislation that could change the scope of greyhound racing in the state.

Branstad promised to sign the marijuana bill next week.

Branstad says he's still considering legislation to end greyhound racing at a track in Council Bluffs but allow it to continue in Dubuque. Later Friday, Branstad signed two bills into law to regulate the use of drones and ban the sale and use of e-cigarettes for minors.

Branstad plans to sign his Home Base Iowa initiative, which offers tax and job incentives to veterans, on Memorial Day.
