Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad said Friday he'll sign a bill legalizing the use of oil derived from marijuana to treat chronic epilepsy, but hasn't made a decision on legislation that could change the scope of greyhound racing in the state.

Speaking on the public television program "Iowa Press," Branstad promised to sign the marijuana bill next week. He also intends to sign bills to regulate the use of drones and ban the sale and use of e-cigarettes for minors. He says he's still considering legislation to end greyhound racing at Bluffs Run in Council Bluffs, but allow it to continue at a track in Dubuque.

Branstad plans to sign his Home Base Iowa initiative, which offers tax and job incentives to veterans, on Memorial Day.
