Wisconsin Senate Committee Unanimously Passes Measure to Legalize Marijuana-Derived Cannabidiol

A Wisconsin Senate committee has voted unanimously to legalize the medical use of cannabis oil that doesn’t contain THC.

The Senate Judiciary Committee passed Senate Bill 10 with a 4 to 0 vote. It now moves towards a vote in the full Senate, where its passage would send it to the House of Representatives. Passage in the House would send it to Governor Scott Walker, likely the measure’s toughest obstacle.

If it is passed into law:

An individual may possess cannabidiol in a form without a psychoactive  effect if the individual has certification stating that the individual possesses  cannabidiol to treat a medical condition, if the certification has an issue date that is  no more than one year prior to the possession, and if any expiration date provided by the physician in the certification has not passed.

The proposal has over 50 sponsors in the House as well as Senate including; Senators Wanggaard, Wirch, Testin, Bewley, Carpenter, Craig, Erpenbach, Hansen, Johnson, Lasee, Ringhand, Roth, Shilling, Taylor and also C. Larson; as well as Representatives Krug, Vos, C. Taylor, Anderson, Ballweg, Berceau, Brandtjen, E. Brooks, R. Brooks, Doyle, Edming, Goyke, Kerkman, Kitchens, Kleefisch, Kooyenga, Kremer, Loudenbeck, Mason, Murphy, Mursau, Novak, Ohnstad, Petryk, Quinn, Riemer, Sargent, Schraa, Shankland, Spiros, Steffen, Subeck, Thiesfeldt, Tittl, Wachs and also Zamarripa
