DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Two state agencies say a process has been established to approve, administer and generate registration cards allowing the use of cannabis oil.

Following months of deliberation between Iowa’s Department of Public Health and its Department of Transportation, the departments announced Monday an application form to obtain the card is now available online.

The Legislature last year approved a law permitting the possession and use of a certain form of cannabis oil for patients with intractable epilepsy. Only patients and their primary caregivers can apply for the registration cards.

According to a news release, the application requires a written recommendation from a neurologist. Upon approval, the patient or caregiver will receive an official approval notification and information on how to get the card through the Transportation Department’s driver’s license issuance sites.
