WisPolitics.com virtual luncheons should address marijuana reform
As the 2021-22 Wisconsin Legislation cycle begins, expect a lot of virtual meetings, town halls and forums. Use this as your opportunity to engage your elected officials. Upcoming here in early 2021 are a few chances.
Newly elected US Rep. Fitzgerald we should ask about federal legislation known as “The MORE Act“, Robin Vos we should ask about his inaction the resolution to forbid Vos to claim he supports medical cannabis, The Joint Finance Committee we should focus on keeping bud in the budget and the Democratic Leaders we need them to take a united front and consider a few things this legislation session; 1) Use this session as an opportunity to highlight the fact for the past 10 years the Republicans are the obstacle to reform, 2) Do not submit legislation unless it is bi-partisan and/or do not submit any legislation at all and put the pressure on the Republican Caucus to come up with a bill, 3) Have 100% of the Democratic Caucus co-sponsor the medical marijuana bill and decriminalization bill the Republicans come up with to avoid the “circus” of a public hearing that Vos so much fears.
