Quest for Justice at the Wisconsin State Capitol: 9/18/07 

Save the date: 9/18 at the Capitol: Medical Cannabis Quest for Justice

Tuesday, September 18 marks the 10th anniversary of the date that Jacki Rickert, accompanied by 15 other medical cannabis patients and a support crew, reached the Wisconsin State Capitol after a weeklong wheelchair march from Mondovi WI, the 1997 Wisconsin "Journey for Justice".

Jacki has long been the face of medical cannabis in Wisconsin. Stricken with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and other painful and incurable medical conditions, Jacki discovered cannabis had the potential to save her life and restore a quality of life. With the help of her late physician, Jacki was approved for participation in a small US government program that to date still supplies 5 living Americans with medical marijuana each month. When the program was suspended and then closed to new members, Jacki was never supplied.

This September 18, please join Jacki and other patients and supporters at the Capitol for a commemoration of the Journey and a press conference announcing introduction of medical cannabis legislation in Wisconsin this session: "The Jacki Rickert Medical Marijuana Act". 

* "Last Mile" memorial wheelchair march remembering patients who have passed: Gather at Lake and State Sts. in downtown Madison at 12:15 March departs 12:30, arrives State Capitol around 1pm.

* 1:30pm Press Conference inside the Capitol, exact location TBA with medical cannabis bill sponsors Reps. Mark Pocan (D-Madison) and Frank Boyle (D-Superior), Jacki Rickert, WI patient-activist Gary Storck, George McMahon, the 5th legal federal medical marijuana patient, WI libertarian Ed Thompson and a representative from the WI Nurses Association.
