NEW SECTION.  124E.2  Leg­isla­tive pur­pose and intent.

The pur­pose and intent of this chap­ter is all of the fol­low­ing:

1.  The framers of the Unit­ed States Con­sti­tu­tion, rec­og­niz­ing state sov­er­eign­ty, secured its pro­tec­tion in the Tenth Amend­ment to the Unit­ed States Con­sti­tu­tion.

2.  Begin­ning with Cal­i­for­nia in 1996, a total of forty-six states have now enact­ed laws defin­ing mar­i­jua­na or extracts of mar­i­jua­na as med­i­cine.

3.  Con­gress did not intend the term “accept­ed med­ical use in treat­ment in the Unit­ed States” to require a find­ing of rec­og­nized med­ical use in every state, Grin­spoon v. Drug Enforce­ment Admin­is­tra­tion, 828 F.3d 881, 886 (1st Cir. 1987).

4.  Con­gress did not define the term “cur­rent­ly accept­ed med­ical use” in the fed­er­al Con­trolled Sub­stances Act, Alliance for Cannabis Ther­a­peu­tics v. Drug Enforce­ment Admin­is­tra­tion, 930 F.2d 936, 939 (D.C. Cir. 1991).

5.  In Gon­za­les v. Ore­gon, 546 U.S. 243 (2006) the Supreme Court of the Unit­ed States acknowl­edged the deci­sion-mak­ing author­i­ty to accept the med­ical use of con­trolled sub­stances is a police pow­er his­tor­i­cal­ly reserved to the states.

6.  The state and fed­er­al clas­si­fi­ca­tion of mar­i­jua­na as a sub­stance with­out accept­ed med­ical use in treat­ment in the Unit­ed States does not apply to the accept­ed med­ical use of mar­i­jua­na in the state of Iowa.
