Only a few weeks are a Republican lawmaker showed his support for medical marijuana, two Democrats introduced bills that would give the state’s lawmakers the chance to rethink the current laws.
As of now, Wisconsin has one of the most effective advocates for medical cannabis currently holding office in Steve Acheson, a Gulf War Veteran. Steve Acheson openly admits to using weed to treat his post-traumatic stress disorder and believes that all the state should be entitled to do so.
Other Republicans have also expressed their positive attitudes towards the green leaf. According to Robin Vos, the Republican speaker of the State Assemble; ” I am not an expert on medical marijuana, but I certainly have no problem with saying, if you have a sincere medical need and your doctor prescribes it, and it’s done under the normal process of any other opiate, I would be open to that”.
If medical cannabis is approved, patients in Wisconsin, including the ones who voted for Donald Trump, would be allowed up to three ounces of cannabis and 12 plants.
Debates on this may take months to unfold, but here at Marijuanabreak, we are all for legalizing the state.
