Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds vetoed a bill that would have lifted the 3% cap on the potency of medical marijuana products available in the state.

Reynolds vetoed the bill Friday afternoon, saying the state must proceed cautiously in any expansion of its medical marijuana program.

If the measure had passed, it likely would have improved business conditions in Iowa’s MMJ market.

The governor said she could support future, more limited efforts to increase the potency of products.

The bill had been approved overwhelmingly in both legislative chambers.
