Two Dane County democrats are on a statewide tour promoting medical marijuana in Wisconsin.
On Wednesday, Representative Chris Taylor and State Senator Jon Erpenbach stopped at the Brown County Courthouse.
They co-sponsored bills that allow for limited use of medical cannabis for those with specific, serious, and debilitating conditions with a doctor’s approval.
The bills were introduced in February of this year and have been stalled in committees.
“We’ve heard situations over and over again where people have put themselves in danger in order to go out and get what they feel is their medicine. And like I said earlier, the legislature should not be in the way of this. They shouldn’t be putting Wisconsinites in harm’s way,” said Sen. Erpenbach.
Rep. Taylor and Sen. Erpenbach say medical marijuana is legal in 29 states.
Governor Scott Walker has said he opposes the idea.
