Bottom line, that is not enough. Especially since I have to write articles titled Congressman Tiffany blows smoke.

If you live, work or know of people in this area, now is the time to act.

If you want to travel to this area and collect signatures or hold an awareness event in a library, now is the time to act.

Governor Evers is keeping on his promise and doing everything he can for the legalization of marijuana in Wisconsin. We need to support Governor Evers including marijuana legalization in the upcoming state budget. Get ready to help Keep Bud in the Budget during the public hearing process again as the 2023 Budget Public Hearing dates are set and Wisconsinites are invited to attend to testify or submit a comment about the budget online.

Federal cannabis reform is moving also. We need to keep the pressure on Congressional Republicans to do the right thing. We need to do the right thing and that includes showing up and speaking at Republican Listening Sessions like the ones Congressman Tom Tiffany is holding.

Listening Sessions are an excellent time to meet with your elected officials one on one. Always remember to bring something of value to the table. If you plan to attend and need background information and talking points or are reporting the results of your meeting use our contact email at WiscoCan@gmail.com.

Public Comments:

  • Quote: “There are a few laws at the federal level that I think we could take a look at. First of all, I believe we should allow the states to make the decision whether they want to legalize marijuana. That’s really consistent on my part, I believe that we should bring much more control back to the states on a variety of issues, and that includes this one. But one thing can be done by the federal government: Currently, marijuana is a Schedule I narcotic, no different than LSD, heroin, things like that. So it really prevents research being done by agencies of the federal government. We really could use that research being done at the federal level, to be able to give policymakers a better idea of the effects of marijuana. And that will help policymakers at the state level to decide if this is the best thing to do for our state.” (2020)

As a Wisconsin State Senator, Rep. Tiffany opposed the decriminalization of marijuana, saying: ““I find it outrageous that he [Governor Tony Evers] claims to be ‘for the children’ when we are beginning to understand the impact of marijuana on the brain, especially for young people.
