Rep. Barbara Dittrich Scorecard Grade
Rep. Barbara Dittrich Scorecard Grade

Republican assembly representative Barbara Dittrich from Oconomowoc was just elected in 2018 and in her candidate interview stated she is “vehemently opposed to THC in any form”  has not co-sponsored any legislation on marijuana reform at all during her first two years in office.    Despite her opposition, her office conducted a 2019 Spring GOP Survey which she asked her voting base which responded with support of marijuana reform.

During 2019, the Assembly Republicans prefiled a bill for the 2020 legislative session to create a medical marijuana program in Wisconsin (Assembly Bill 750) which she failed to co-sponsor despite public and district support.  Now late into the 2020 session, Rep. Dittrich is flip-flopping on her social media policy and maybe giving public statements asking for a public hearing on the issue, it is unclear as her office does not return our phone calls or messages.
