Over the past several years, thirty-seven states have passed legislation allowing medical patients to receive marijuana. Iowa's version was signed into law by the Governor of Iowa on June 1, 1979, after passing in the Iowa Senate by 46 to 0, and in the Iowa House by 68 to 26. In March of 1992, that legislation was effectively nullified when the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the only legal source of marijuana in the United States, decided to stop the supply. Remedial legislation is necessary.
