Branstad: Legalizing Marijuana Not on 2014 Legislative Agenda
As the next Iowa legislative session nears, Governor Terry Branstad says he has modest legislative goals this year. Branstad says he plans to address bullying, get internet access to more rural Iowans, and to support veterans. One issue that Branstad says he has no plans to focus on is the legalization of marijuana. He says he's heard nothing but bad reports from Colorado lawmakers since the state became the first to allow retail sales. Branstad will give his annual Condition of the State address next week.
