Continuing to digest the election on the Wisconsin state level and I have a rough draft of the 33 Senators and 99 Assembly Representatives stances on recreational and medical marijuana (with and without home grows).
I am going to use a Graph / Infograph that will be alive throughout the entire legislative session and subject to change(s) as the legislative session progresses so we can see the status / current breakdown / percentage of support on the issue at any given time.
There are a few still unknowns, uncommitted and incumbents on the fence about sponsoring bill(s) also. Check back often as the legislative process for 2021-22 is just beginning.
The Republican Caucus has selected their leadership for the upcoming law making cycle and are will be in the majority on the committees that oversee marijuana reform. Democratic Leadership positions are also set in place also. Right now the budget process begins and you can help keep BUD in the budget through Governor Evers People’s Budget Process. The Joint Finance Committee Members consist of 16 members and only one (1) of those members on this committee has ever co-sponsored legislation to legalize adult use marijuana in Wisconsin and the Republican Majority on the JFC has indicated that marijuana reform will again be removed from the Wisconsin Budget.
I have also listed the Senators and Assembly Representatives by individual name and stance on cannabis reform, along with their other occupations/professions/careers. View those names and blogs here: Senate Members / Assembly Members
Since it appears that marijuana reform will be removed from the budget, stand alone legislation is also planned for the 2021-22 legislative session. The first bill introduced was a state level decriminalization bill that has broad bi-partisan support. Learn more about the decriminalization bill here, sign in support of decriminalization below and watch for medical marijuana legislation to be introduced early this session.
