Assembly Representative Robin Vos is manipulating the democratic process and misleading the voters of Wisconsin by continuing to say he “supports medical marijuana”.
After serving 15 years in the legislature, Republican Robin Vos has not really moved on his stance. He must not have been entertained enough because he did not even co-sponsor the Republican bill to create a medical marijuana program for Wisconsin, nor did he allow the bill to advance through to a public hearing, calling the potential hearing a “circus”.
The 2019-20 Republican Assembly Bill to create a medical marijuana program did not allow home growing of cannabis or marijuana smoking products. Vetted and supported by the Republican Caucus, if Assembly Rep. Robin Vos was a leader he would have supported this measure. If Robin Vos cared about the sick, dying and disabled in Wisconsin that benefit from medical marijuana, he would have done more than insist to the main stream media that “no one can say he does not support medicinal marijuana.
We need to send a clear message to Robin Vos that lip service is not enough!
Resolution No. 420-710-365
RESOLUTION TO FORBID ASSEMBLY REPRESENTATIVE ROBIN VOS FROM PROCLAIMING HE SUPPORT MEDICAL CANNABIS REFORM
TO THE WISCONSIN STATE SENATE, WISCONSIN STATE ASSEMBLY, MAIN STREAM MEDIA CONTACTS
WHEREAS, Existing (Wisconsin and federal) law criminalizes the use of cannabis; and
WHEREAS, As of December 2020, the use of cannabis for medical purposes is legal in 35 states; and
WHEREAS, While there is a dearth of rigorous peer-reviewed studies (clinical trials), the relative benefits and risks of medial cannabis are believed to be reasonably well understood; and
WHEREAS, The essence of medical marijuana laws are the rights for patients and caregivers to grow their own medicine; and
WHEREAS, The smoking of medical marijuana is an essential, affordable and effective delivery method for those patients who choose to use cannabis medicinally; and
WHEREAS, Repeatedly saying to main stream media that “you support medical marijuana” and taking no action on issue is lying and not the character needed in our elected leaders; and
WHEREAS, Not authoring or co-sponsoring legislation on an issue that an elected official claims to support does not show the sign of a true leader; and
WHEREAS, Calling a potential Public Hearing on the issue of medical marijuana reform a “circus” when your party controls the committee(s) and both houses does not show respect for the rules, ethics and procedures elected officials took an oath to uphold.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, That the undersigned citizens of Wisconsin hereby express their support in forbidding State Assembly Representative Robin Vos from saying he supports medical cannabis until he signs on as a co-sponsor of medical cannabis legislation.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That the undersigned citizens of Wisconsin hereby expresses their support for Wisconsin taking steps towards cannabis legalization for medical purposes.
