Gov Branstad signs bill for use of cannabis oil


Iowa Governor Terry Branstad signed several bills into law Friday, including one legalizing the use of cannabis oil to treat severe epilepsy.

The cannabis bill is a victory for mothers of children with epilepsy who persistently lobbied lawmakers.

The other lessens the penalties for people who unknowingly expose someone to HIV.

It changes current law and imposes a 25-year prison sentences only when someone intends to transmit a disease without a partner's knowledge.
