Branstad "Very Likely" to Sign Medical Marijuana Bill



Governor Terry Branstad says he'll ``very likely'' sign a bill allowing the use of cannabis oil to treat severe epilepsy. The Freeman Journal reports Branstad was asked Thursday morning at a town hall meeting in Webster City about whether he would sign a bill allowing the medical use of oil derived from the cannabis plant as a last-resort treatment for seizures caused by a chronic form of epilepsy. Branstad responded that he doesn't have the bill and reserves judgment until reading the final measure. But he added that  it's very likely that he will.
