Wisconsin Lawmakers Vote Unanimously to Advance CBD Legislation

0

On Feb. 2, the Wisconsin Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved legislation that, if passed by the full Senate, could legalize the valuable CBD oil extracted from the marijuana plant in the treatment of seizures.

Without a dissenting vote, the Judiciary Committee advanced (R) Sen. Van Wanggard’s CBD bill before the full Senate for consideration, according to NBC 15.

“The proposal would allow parents of children who suffer from seizures to possess cannabidiol oil with a doctor’s certification. Parents who testified at a hearing for the bill earlier this week said they were heartbroken when similar legislation passed the Assembly last session but stalled in the Senate.”

Unfortunately for all concerned, there are two very formidable obstacles in the way of this critical legislation becoming reality: (R) Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald and Gov. Scott Walker.  With the bill still needing to gain approval in the Senate and Assembly, many fear Gov. Walker and Fitzgerald will ultimately obstruct the bill’s passage.

Born in Long Beach, raised on the central coast: I surf, dab, burn, and blog – though not necessarily in that order. I'm a husband, a father and a lifelong consumer of connoisseur grade weed. I don't drink alcohol or consume any other "drugs." I consider myself to be living proof that weed is not a gateway drug. If it were, I'd be in some serious trouble. Instead, as a 50-year-old ex-realtor that has been smoking weed for nearly 80% of my life (just did the math) ... I can only say, marijuana is safer than prescription pills or alcohol could ever hope to be for calming what stirs the savage beast.
