Assembly District 55 in Neenah (Map) is going to see a new face for the 2019-2020 legislative session, replacing a non supportive and silent on the subject politician.
On the position of marijuana reform, we have to thank Wi Eye for the candidates interviews and “marijuana” question. Board members and field activists have reported back on the campaigns also and confirm what the videos below do also.
Rachael Cabral-Guevara (R) Neenah – says is open to any innovative to bring in revenues, other states have legalized adult use and we know the pros and cons, many constituents have contacted her support for adult use. For medial marijuana, she knows patients who have been prescribed marijuana and it benefits them, in a time that we are missing 2 million in revenue is it something to look at possibly. The interviewer went on to ask a question at the end in which I believe the candidate did not understand what he was asking.
Here is the link to GOP Debate in which Rachael defended her views on marijuana reform from GOP candidate attack: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=626979698225320 the portion you want to watch starts at 42 minutes into the video

Dan Schierl (D) has been vocal about reform in his past election campaign and cannabis reform is on his official campaign website as a platform issue:
I support a statewide referendum regarding the full legalization for both medical and recreational use (Assembly Bill 220 is what he is referencing).
I also support releasing those incarcerated for possession or selling, as non violent crimes.
On September 15, 2020, WisconsinEye senior producer Steve Walters interviewed Dan Schierl (D-Neenah) who is running for the 55th Assembly District in the upcoming general election.
As a 2018 candidate Schierl said: I support legalization of medical cannabis and also strongly feel we should be looking at full legalization for a tax revenue and also I do not think we should be giving a green light for big pharm to make synthetic cannabis and charging outrageous prices like they do on all of their drugs. And cannabis is a natural plant with no man-made chemicals. Legalization also will create small businesses throughout the state, which would be good for our economy.
Completed 2018 Candidate Questionnaire.
