Iowa lawmakers on Thursday approved a bill that would legalize possession of a liquid, non-intoxicating form of marijuana as a treatment for severe epilepsy, sending it to Governor Terry Branstad. The Washington-based pro-marijuana group NORML said,Iowa would join five other states with similar measures including Wisconsin and Mississippi if the Republican governor signs the bill into law. Branstad has said he would consider signing the bill approved with bipartisan support by state representatives early Thursday. The Senate, which had passed a previous version, approved the House changes.
