The Iowa Senate passed a bill June 3 to change the THC cap in the state’s medical cannabis program, sending the legislation to Gov. Kim Reynolds, who vetoed a similar proposal last year.

Lawmakers approved the bill in a 32-17 vote on their first day back in session following the legislature’s shutdown in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a We Are Iowa report.

The legislation, which cleared the House in March, would replace the state’s current 3% THC limit for medical cannabis products with a limit of 4.5 grams of THC in a 90-day period, according to a KCCI report.

Last year, Reynolds vetoed a bill that would have allowed patients to purchase 25 grams of THC over a 90-day period, citing concerns that the limit was too high.
