Marijuana's Legal Status in Iowa

After this year’s November election, where voters in Colorado and Washington voted to make marijuana legal for recreational use, people in Iowa are proposing similar legislation.Two bills will be proposed in the Iowa legislature, one on making medical marijuana legal in the state, and one decriminalizing the possession of small amounts of the substance.

Ben Kieffer speaks with those promoting the increased legality of marijuana in the state of Iowa, and those against any kind of legalization. He compares support of marijuana use in the state, to the chances for approved legislation on the issue.
