Carl’s Cannabis Corner – May 25, 2014

On April 23, 2014, John Forbes PH’80, Drake College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, gave the 2014 Weaver Medal of Honor Lecture at Drake University. John represents Iowa House District 40 in the Iowa House of Representatives and is the owner and manager of Medicap Pharmacy in Urbandale, Iowa. At the end of his lecture, John explained the negotiations that went on behind the scenes with Iowa Governor Terry Branstad and House Committee on Public Safety chair, Rep. Clel Baudler.
