Comments

In 2019, Gov. Evers introduced language in his state budget proposal that sought to decriminalize minor marijuana possession offenses and legalize medical cannabis access. Lawmakers failed to enact either proposal. (Link)

"As a cancer survivor, I know the side effects of a major illness can make every task a struggle. People shouldn’t be treated like criminals for accessing medicine that can change or maybe even save their lives." (Link)

"When more than 80 percent of our state supports medical marijuana…and elected officials can ignore those numbers without consequence, folks, something’s wrong." (Link)
