State medical cannabis supporters are not prepared to see Assembly Bill 550, the Jacki Rickert Medical Marijuana Act, go down without a fight. To that end, sick and dying Wisconsin patients and supporters will be making our way to the Capitol next Wednesday evening, Jan. 23, to hold a silent vigil outside the State of the State Address, per below...
State of the State Address medical cannabis vigil Wed. Jan. 23 @ Capitol after 5:30 pm
Dear Wisconsin medical cannabis supporters,
On Wednesday Jan. 23, 2008 at 7 pm, Governor Jim Doyle will be delivering his "State of the State" Address in the State Capitol's Assembly Chambers to the full legislature, most ranking state government officials and the press.
Beginning at 5:30 pm, medical marijuana activists and supporters will be holding a
silent vigil outside the Assembly Chambers to dramatize the urgent need for legal access to medical cannabis for sick and dying Wisconsinites, and to call attention to Assembly Bill 550, the Jacki Rickert Medical Marijuana Act, currently stalled in committee. Through this vigil, patients hope to send state lawmakers and Gov. Doyle the message that the state of state patients is not good, and that AB 550 needs to be passed and signed this session, because patients need medical cannabis today, and many will not live until next session.
Please join Jacki Rickert, myself and other Wisconsin patients and supporters Wednesday evening at the Capitol. Small signs are allowed and will be
provided, or bring your own.
