Iowa Board of Medicine Notice of December 19, 2007, regarding DEA regulations
Chief Administrative Law Judge for the Drug Enforcement Administration Weighs In on September 6, 1988
Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man.
In The Matter of Marijuana Rescheduling Petition, DEA Docket No. 86-22, September 6, 1988, at pages 58-59.
Iowa District Court Weighs In on August 13, 1997
What all of this means is that, if the board of pharmacy examiners
really concludes marijuana to have no medicinal value, as alleged by
the assistant county attorney, the board has an unqualified duty to
recommend that the general assembly delete it from Schedule II and
revise Schedule I so that it is not excluded even when utilized for
medicinal purposes. See Sections 124.203, 124.205, (The Code 1997).
Judge Jon Fister, First Judicial District, State v. Helmers, No. FECR047575.
Iowa Supreme Court Weighs In on February 11, 2005
Use of marijuana is a public-policy issue best suited for the legislature
because it is driven by legal, moral, philosophical, and medical concerns
that are ill-suited for resolution by this court. This is especially true
in view of the fact the legislature has deferred the initial decision on
the matter to the Board of Pharmacy Examiners.
State v. Bonjour, 694 N.W.2d 511, 514 (Iowa 2005)
Iowa Board of Pharmacy Weighs In on February 17, 2010
The Iowa Board of Pharmacy recommends that the legisalture reclassify marijuana from Schedule I of the Iowa Controlled Substances Act (Act) into Schedule II of the Act with the further recommendation that the legislature convene a task force or study committee comprised of various disciplines including but not limited to the following: a representative of a seriously ill patient; a representative of law enforcement; a representative of the Iowa Attorney General; a representative of an HIV organization or a physician caring for an AIDS patient; a substance abuse treatment representative; a person living with a serious illness; a hospice or palliative care representative; a representative of the Iowa Board of Nursing; a representative of the Iowa Board of Medicine; and a representative of the Iowa Board of Pharmacy, for the purpose of making recommendations back to the legislature regarding the administration of a medical marijuana program.
