We are hosting a rally to let the public know that this is still an issue that people care about and get people to step up and be active.
We are going to have Signature forms free for anybody to sign and are also able to turn them in for you if you would like.
We are also going to have Activism Kits that are being givin away for $5-10 donations.
We are also going to have a few extra signs and some markers for you to make your own signs if you wish (you are going to have to supply the card/poster board) and are encouraging anyone and everyone to join us.
I am asking that everybody keeps clean and doesn’t carry ANYTHING on them that could cause a problem. No paraphernalia please.
FYI this is a PEACEFUL rally and you are going to get some people who like to mouth off and try to belittle you, don’t even respond to them.
What: Movie screening of new Industrial Hemp documentary, “Bringing it Home”
When: Saturday November 9, 2013 1-3pm. Followed by open discussion as well as question & answer session.
Where: Appleton Public Library, 225 Oneida Street, Appleton, WI 54911
Why: To raise awareness of the uses and benefits of industrial hemp farming in America.
Who’s invited: Everyone. Open to the public. This is a FREE event.
A father’s search to find the healthiest building materials leads him to the completion of the nation’s first hemp house. Hemp with lime is a non-toxic, energy efficient, mildew, fire and pest resistant building material. The drawback — industrial hemp is currently illegal to farm in the U.S.A. Industrial hemp is a non-psychoactive plant, grown in 31 other countries that makes 1,000′s of sustainable products and offers solutions for global warming, nutrition, poverty and deforestation. Here in the U.S., hemp could be a money-making crop for farmers and create jobs. But why can’t we grow it here?
BRINGING IT HOME tells the story of hemp: past, present and future and a global industry that includes textiles, building materials, food products, bio-plastics, auto parts and more.

If my memory serves me correctly, in the past the formal press release from the sponsors of the legislation will be circulated very shortly before the event. The inside scoop from activists in Madison is that the 2013-2014 Medical Marijuana bill will be introduced by Representative Christine Taylor and Senator Jon Erpenbach on Thursday October 3rd, 2013 in the Assembly Parlor at the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison at 10:30am
Although this is not official and has not been confirmed by this author, the following post in the Wisconsin NORML Facebook Group indicates we are on the right track with this early information. Here is the post:
Hey , the new Wisconsin medical cannabis act is rolling out Thursday at 10:30am and we need lots of professionals there, media, this is info from a meeting today with Gary Storck, Craig Trost (Rep Taylors aide), Kelly (Sen Erpenbachs aide) and Greg Kinsely.
Pass this on please have a good day we were asked to dress to impress!
If more information becomes available or changes, I will be sure to keep you updated. See you at the Capitol Building Assembly Parlor at 10:30am this coming Thursday, October 3rd, 2013.
Rep. Stuck from Appleton has served three terms and been supportive of cannabis reform and this past session sponsored bills on adult use and medical marijuana. She is in constant communication on the issue, returns phone calls and listens to voters on the issue. Her “response” letters to constituents are not form letters and she offers next steps of action to help reform move through the legislative process.
As Rep. Stuck has announced she will not seek re-election in the assembly and is off to seek a congressional seat. We are happy to say thank you for your work and give her an A+

Candidate in race for U.S. House District 8 (D)
Position on Marijuana Legalization: Legalizing and regulating use of marijuana by adults would have cascading positive benefits for the people and communities of this state. As a medical alternative, marijuana could save lives and alleviate our over reliance on opioids. The taxes collected from cannabis sales could be used to fund any number of projects as could the money saved from the criminal justice system.
Position on Marijuana Decriminalization: Decriminalizing simple possession would be a step in the right direction. It would eliminate the need to prosecute and incarcerate individuals for many marijuana-related crimes which would be a boon for those using marijuana as well as the tax payers.
Convictions can loom large over an individuals future. Allowing them the opportunity to remove that burden after legalization or decriminalization would be an incredible boost to individuals and the communities they live in.
Position on Medical Marijuana: There have been various studies showing medical benefits including pain relief, seizure mitigation and eases anxiety/stress. Allowing medical professionals to use an alternative to highly addictive opioids would be a huge boost for many of our ailing citizens.Sponsored Legislation
We would like to announce that after 13 years, we have decided to close our NORML chapter. There are a variety of reasons for this, but one of those reasons is that for the past 13 years, we have also been running the Wisconsin Cannabis Activist Network, and this is where we have decided to focus our efforts going forward. So, follow us on our other adventure, and join us in our activism on that platform!

The winner of the primary election above will face Incumbent Republican Pat Synder. In 2018 Snyder was interviewed as a candidate about marijuana and you can review that here. He has only served two terms and growing on issue of medical marijuana. His district shows high support for cannabis reform and Rep. Snyder responded by at least co-sponsoring the bill to create a medical marijuana program in Wisconsin. Rep. Snyder received a B- grade from NORML during the 2019-20 legislative session.
