winning millions, the new diet. thanks for watching onn a dnesday night. i'm david muir. i hope to see you right bbecome one step closer to reality. the number of fire deaths in iowa sfar this year is double what it was at this time last year. some dubuque county sheriff's deputies are to thank for saving a frozen lizard off the side of the road. you're watching kcrg-tv9. now, from your 24 hour news source, this is kcrg-tv9 news at 6. an effort to expand medicinal marijuana is a step closer to reality in iowa. a bill to allow the manufacture, sale and distribution of cannabis oil in the state has pasasd the house commerce committee. it'll avoid friday's deadline funnel-- when non budget bills must pass full committees in either the house or senate to stay alive. but the legislation has changed drastically.
5:59 pm
called for the state department of health to issue licenses to four cannabis manufacturer s and 12 dispensers. the new version reduces that to two manufactures that could also dispense cannabis oil. the old version also allowed doctors to prescribe cannabis oil for more than 10 conditions. the new version includes just three... m-s, terminal cancer, and severe epilepsy. kcrg t-v nine's forrest saunders joins us now. forrest, the bill has bi- partisan support, but it's pretty controversial ? yeah, the new version didn't get through committee unanimously. it passed 17 to 6. many lobbying groups have been lining up for and against the bill. some from the american civil liberties union of iowa and brain injury alliance supported the original version. a few from the iowa medical society and iowa peace officers association didn't like it. thanks to legislation, , assed in 2014, cannabis oil is technically legal to use in iowa
6:00 pm
epilepsy. but, lawmakers neglected to go any further. it's illegal to bring cannabis oil in, or buy it in the state. the law doesn't do much. and though the new bill doesn't go as far to change that as it once did, the legislation's creator says getting it through committee is a step in the right direction. " let's be clear, this is rogress. the foundation was built two years ago. what was passed out of subcommittee today is progress on this. it's going to help iowans." the bill will now head to the house floor for debate. there, republican speaker linda upmeyer has been critical of the bill. she's said iowa doctors worry they'll lose their license writing prescriptions for cannabis oil, seeing as the fdfdhasn't approved marijuana for medical use. we'll have to see what happens next. thanks, forrest. one bill that likely won't make it through to the house or senate would have increased the interstate speed limits in iowa
