Discussing What’s Next for Medical Marijuana in Wisconsin
As states across the country loosen their laws on marijuana, momentum is gaining for a medical plan in Wisconsin. Assembly Republicans unveiled legislation this month that would allow residents with chronic diseases to access the drug from state-run dispensaries. But Senate Republicans have been less receptive to the concept and Democrats are pushing for full legalization. Meanwhile, the state’s doctors say there hasn’t been enough research on its efficacy.
A Wisconsin Health News virtual panel will examine what’s next for medical marijuana in the state and what impact it could have on patients.
