2 of Iowa's 5 medical marijuana dispensaries, Davenport and Council Bluffs, have closed

It's not clear why the two dispensaries were closed.

DAVENPORT, Iowa — State health officials say medical marijuana dispensaries have closed in Council Bluffs and Davenport. 

The disclosure Monday by the Iowa Public Health Department said patients and caregivers still may purchase the cannabidiol products at Iowa's three other licensed outlets, in Sioux City, Waterloo and in the Des Moines suburb of Windsor Heights. 

It's not clear why the two dispensaries were closed. 

Their operators, Have A Heart Compassionate Care, didn't immediately return messages Wednesday from The Associated Press. 

The 2017 Medical Cannabidiol Act allows the use of cannabidiol that has no more than 3% THC, the compound in marijuana that causes a high.
