An Iowa lawmaker who says he faked symptoms to obtain a medical marijuana prescription in California will answer to the House Ethics Committee, although he says he never filled the prescription and simply wanted to show how ridiculous it would be to legalize medical marijuana in Iowa.
The six-member committee will meet Thursday morning to discuss whether Rep. Clel Baudler, a Greenfield Republican and former state trooper, will face any repercussions for his actions.
The Iowa Board of Pharmacy voted unanimously last year to recommend that lawmakers reclassify marijuana so it could be used for medical purposes, but lawmakers say an effort to set up a medical marijuana program in Iowa is unlikely to move forward anytime soon.
