It was on Oct. 3, 1972. I was a 17-year old high school senior born with glaucoma. For 17 years I suffered eye pain and sensitivity and vision loss.

Madison: With just weeks remaining in the 2021-2022 Wisconsin legislative session, Sen. Mary Felzkowski, (R-Tomahawk) and Rep. Pat Snyder, (R-Schofield), joined by six other GOP colleagues in the Capitol's assembly Parlor to announce the introduction of medical cannabis legislation. Felzkowski had also sponsored similar legislation last session.
