As a freshman assembly representative from Racine, Greta Neubauer did not co-sponsor any marijuana legislation her first session.  Although she made a public statement about the marijuana reform in the budget, her statements did not touch on adult use/recreational marijuana. 

With her district showing 85% support for medical and 59% for recreational marijuana in the 2018 referendums, we had high hopes this representative would have co-sponsored all marijuana reform bills in the 2019-2020.   She received a C- grade from NORML during the last legislative session. Should she be re-elected in 2020, she can raise her grade by working on the issue.
