State could legalize medical marijuana

By  | 

The public will get a chance to comment on a proposal to legalize medical marijuana in Wisconsin on December 15th.

A bill to do that will be the subject of a joint hearing before the Senate and Assembly health committees.

Advocates of medical marijuana have tried to legalize it for years, arguing that it helps ease the pain for those suffering from myriad diseases, including cancer and AIDS.

Under the bill, in order to get medical marijuana the patient would need to have a doctor's prescription and suffer from one of a list of ailments listed in the bill.

The state would keep a registry of both those who can receive and dispense marijuana.

The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws says 13 states have legalized marijuana.
