Rep. Jimmy Anderson: Failure to legalize medical marijuana is an act of cruelty


Rep. Jimmy Anderson: Failure to legalize medical marijuana is an act of crueltyWisconsin Republicans are denying people access to medical marijuana. They are denying people who are at the end of their rope of a viable alternative for dealing with severe and chronic pain that doesnt rely on highly addictive opioids. It makes no sense.As far as I can tell, Wisconsin Republicans are denying people access to this potentially life-saving alternative for no other reason than Gov. Tony Evers is a Democrat. Medical marijuana is broadly popular, often receiving upwards of 85 percent support, including a majority of Republicans. Medical marijuana legislation has been passed in 33 states, including many Republican-controlled states like North Dakota, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Utah. In fact, every state that borders Wisconsin except for Iowa has medical marijuana. I have yet to hear from my Republican colleagues a single legitimate political or policy-based reason why Wisconsin has not passed this legislation.

For Wisconsin Republicans to hold this issue hostage while people suffer and die is the very definition of cruelty. It is so disdainful and so devoid of empathy that I struggle to process it.It's time for Wisconsinites to take action. Please join me to demand accountability
