Would you support changing state law to legalize marijuana and/or cannabis products? If so, under what conditions? If not, why?
Last session we passed two pieces of legislation. One allows industrial hemp to be grown in Wisconsin. The other makes it lawful for doctors to prescribe cannabinoid (CBD) oil to patients. My concern is that the federal government considers marijuana a controlled substance. I don’t feel comfortable moving forward until the jurisdictional issues are addressed. In Wisconsin we do not tax medical supplies.
