Medical Marijuana bill introduced into Wisconsin Legislature 

On January 14, 2002, Assembly Bill 715, sponsored by Representatives Boyle, Pocan, Skindrud, Sherman, Schneider, Berceau, Gronemus, Carpenter, Miller and Plouff, was introduced into the Wisconsin Legislature.

Unfortunately, due to the introduction late in the 2001-2002 legislative session, with only two months remaining in the regular session, the bill ended up bottled up in the Criminal Justice Committee, where it saw no action, and is now functionally dead for the session.

More information on this bill, including a link to download a copy of the bill in PDF format can be found on the Wisconsin Legislature website at: http://www.legis.state.wi.us/2001/data/AB715hst.html.

Supporters are encouraged to contact their Assembly and Senate representatives and ask for their support on the bill, which sponsors have promised to reintroduce next January. With this being an election year with the entire Assembly and half the Senate up for reelection this November, as well as a hotly contested race for governor, supporters should also take the opportunity to sound out candidates positions and ask their support. 

Watch this spot for updates as well as the Drug Policy Forum of Wisconsin website at: www.drugsense.org/dpfwi. You can also sign up for the DPFWI mailing list by clicking on the Mailing List link on the DPFWI site,  which will have email updates of the latest developments.
