Carl’s Cannabis Corner – March 2, 2014

It’s an open phone today: (567) 314-2730. The access code is 420420# (four twenty, four twenty, pound sign). The show begins at 1:00 p.m. Central Time.

We are going to discuss agency rule making and other agency actions today, along with judicial review. State and federal law are similar in the way state agencies are set up under the state and federal constitutions. Both the state of Iowa and the federal government have administrative procedures acts. The federal Administrative Procedures Act (APA) is found in Title 5 of the United States Code. The Iowa Administrative Procedures Act is found in Title 17A of the Iowa Code. Agencies have broad discretion in the interpretation of the statutes they administer, because that is why they are created in the first place (to administer statutory duties of the executive branch created by the legislatures). We are going to talk specifically about the authority of administrative agencies to determine “accepted medical use” of controlled substances.

  1. run for Governor we need someone that will represent the people not the corporations

  2. I was asked if I was running for office at my precinct caucus. I have no immediate plans to run for public office. I’m supporting Jack Hatch for Governor of Iowa, but mostly just because he’s been a supporter of medical marijuana for the past decade in the Iowa Legislature.
