Iowa lawmakers have advanced a bill that, if successful, would lift the 3% THC potency cap for medical marijuana products.

The potency cap has resulted in confusion for both the industry and medical marijuana patients and, if removed, would likely improve business conditions in Iowa’s MMJ market.

The Iowa House of Representatives approved the bill, which now awaits hearings in the state Senate, according to Cedar Rapids TV station KCRG.

Medical marijuana sales in the state began in November.
