(Ames, IA) -- A group of Iowa State Students called NORML wants to legalize recreational marijuana use in Iowa.

The group put a billboard up in Des Moines promoting a website where they are asking for 10-thousand signatures.

Marijuana use in Iowa is currently illegal unless someone has a medical marijuana card.

A member of the group tells KCRG TV 9, “We want to expand Iowa’s medical marijuana program including access and recognized conditions for obtaining a medical card,”

“We also want recreational marijuana because there are so many good reasons: economic, racial justice, and the list goes on.”

So far, the group has gotten a thousand signatures. The campaign for signatures ends September 12th.
