    Wisconsin NORML: Marijuana law reform lobby day - Jan 16 at the State Capitol



    According to a recent AP news article Gov. Scott Walker said state residents would have to approve of marijuana reform, such as that passed by residents of Colorado and Washington, via referendum similar to Colorado and Washington.

    Wisconsin's referendum process only allows for voter initiated direct legislation on a village or city ballot. This is different than Colorado and Washington and is codified in Wisconsin Statute 9.20.

    The legislature must take action to place language on a statewide ballot for voters to have their say. A referendum must include language for the regulation and taxation of marijuana including hemp, allowing adults to consume or possess limited amounts of marijuana and allowing for cultivation, production, testing and retail sales of marijuana products.

    Cannabis activists from across the state will be coming to the State Capitol to lobby our legislature to put such a referendum on the ballot. Please join us to move Wisconsin forward on this matter.

    Jan 13 2-4pm @ WilMar Center 953 Jenifer St. Madison, WI - Lobby Training with former Capitol staffer and current union organizer $5 suggested donation.

    Jan 14 7-9pm @ WilMar Center 953 Jenifer St. Madison, WI Madison NORML meeting will be Lobby Training with former Capitol staffer and current union organizer $5 suggested donation.

    Jan 15 6pm @ WI State Capitol. Marijuana law reform activist presence at State of the State. Meet outside the Assembly chambers on 3rd floor of Capitol. In the past, this has offered us the opportunity to speak briefly with legislators. Have an elevator speech ready.

    Jan 16 Lobby Day - Meet with legislators and staffers at WI State Capitol, lobby for the reform of marijuana laws. 10-4pm meet in rotunda at 10pm & 1pm if you'd like to lobby as a group.

    Wisconsin lawmakers have put forth several bills to address racist and outdated prohibition laws. It's time to debate this legislation and to schedule public hearings without delay.

    SB363/AB480 provides legal protection for medical cannabis patients who use it to treat symptoms of illness such as cancer, glaucoma and PTSD under the order of a practitioner. SB363 is held up in the Health and Human Services committee, chaired by Sen. Leah Vukmir (R-Waukesha) who is a nurse and says she believes there is no medicinal value to marijuana and will not give the bill a public hearing. AB480 is held up in the Health Committee, chaired by Rep. Erik Severson (R-Star Prairie) who has stated he will not give the bill a public hearing.

    AB638 is bi-partisan legislation which would authorize the growing and processing of industrial hemp. Hemp in this bill is defined as having lower than 0.3% THC. Wisconsin was a top producer of hemp in the 1900s. Wisconsin fields grow feral hemp to this day. Hemp mill artifacts can be found throughout the state. AB638 has been referred to the Committee on Consumer Protection chaired by Rep. Jeremy Thiesfeldt (R-Fond du Lac) who earlier this session introduced legislation to harshen marijuana possession penalties.

    AB726 is bi-partisan legislation which would define CBD separately from THC. The CBD extract is allowed to be dispensed by a practitioner for the treatment of a seizure disorder. It is rumored that an amendment to this legislation to allow people to acquire the oil across state lines via a DEA IND program will be put forth, but expansion of the conditions will not be considered. It was introduced by Rep. Robb Kahl (D-Monona) and a hearing was held in the Children and Families on 2/12 (http://www.wiseye.org/Programming/VideoArchive/EventDetail.aspx?evhdid=8492), chaired by legislation co-sponsor Rep. Scott Krug (R-Nekoosa). The bill does not have a Senate version at this time.

    LRB3671 was introduced by Rep. Melissa Sargent (D-Madison) and as she stated in a letter sent to colleagues "would create a regulatory framework for marijuana possession and distribution. It would also standardize age of use as well as penalties for operating while under the influence."

    Instead of wasting tens of millions of taxpayer dollars a year fighting a never ending "war on marijuana," Wisconsin lawmakers should take this opportunity to give the People what they want: patient access to safe medicine without being a criminal and sensible marijuana laws.

    Wisconsin Marijuana Billboard:

    Wisconsin reform organizations, working together, have worked to set up this goal.
    We hope to gain your support in working towards putting up a billboard in the Waukesha/Brookfield/West Allis area, near districts of Sen Vukmir and Sen Lazich.

    Medical Marijuana is supported by a majority of Wisconsin voters, but this medicine is being blocked by politicians. Patients are needlessly suffering. Your donation can make a big difference.

    The primary goal is to put pressure on politicians who are against medical cannabis, and this is a very prominent spot for billboards, near two committee member districts. A secondary goal is to have residual effect on 2014 elections.

    To achieve this goal, we are hoping to top $7500 through crowdfunding. We hope to run the billboard for 4-6 weeks before the November 2014 election.

    We hope you will donate to this campaign.

    The billboard will be digital, present a picture of Lazich and Vukmir with text of "Who is stopping medical cannabis in Wisconsin? Sen Lazich is... Sen Vukmir is..." It will have reference to SB363.
    Please send questions to madison@winorml.org
