MADISON, WI – For the first time, Republican Senators are getting close to supporting legalizing medicinal marijuana in the state of Wisconsin.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu who previously has always opposed legalizing medicinal marijuana is now considering supporting it. He does request regulations be put in place to ensure those seeking medicinal marijuana are in ‘serious pain’.
It is unclear when they will vote on it but the Senate GOP all concede they are ‘close’ to supporting its legalization. However, Senator Mary Felzkowski plans to reintroduce the legislation on the state-run medicinal marijuana program.
