Common council member encouraged by medical cannabis bill

A Sturgeon Bay Common Council member is encouraged to hear of bipartisan support for a bill to legalize marijuana for medical use.  The bill would allow people with diagnosed illnesses or disorders to legally obtain cannabis with a prescription from their doctor at state regulated dispensaries.  It would also require the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection to set quality standards for growers, producers and sellers.  Sturgeon Bay Common Council member Seth Wiederanders, who supports legalizing marijuana for medical and recreational use, calls the bill a good step for people who are hurting.




The bill is the first effort to legalize medical marijuana in Wisconsin since a similar bill failed in 2001. Since then, numerous communities have passed non-binding referendums in favor of legalizing medical marijuana.
