with No Comments

Rep John Spiros (R-Marshfield) representing Wisconsin’s 86th Assembly District and Chair of the 2019 Assembly Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety which is holding up the Legalize Opportunity – Legalize Marijuana Bill (AB 220). In an interview before being re-elected in 2018, he seemed to think CBD Oil was the miracle cure and medical marijuana was not needed, while dismissing the opportunity marijuana reform presents.

He had a question about marijuana for the constituents that live within the following area early this spring on a 2019 GOP Assembly Spring Survey.

 “Legalization of marijuana for medical and recreational purposes has been proposed. Law enforcement, educators and the medical community oppose legalization. Which best describes your views on marijuana legalization?”

31% indicated “I do not support any legalization of marijuana use”,

20% indicated “I support full decriminalization of marijuana for recreational or medical use”,
