There has been a fair amount of media coverage regarding the recently announced Medical Cannabis Light proposal introduced by Sen. Mary Felzkowski and other Republicans here in the waning days of the 2021-2022 legislative session.
Wisconsin Radio Network's Bob Hague wrote a report for Wisconsin Radio Network published January 31, 2022 that included comments I'd made in an interview a few days earlier, titled "Advocate and Democrats critical of latest Republican medical marijuana bill".
Here is an excerpt with my comments:
"A long-time advocate says the latest medical marijuana bill being offered by Republican legislators falls far short of what people need to access the drug. Gary Storck of Madison heads the group Is My Medicine Legal Yet?
“Some ability to grow your own medicine is pretty critical, because that way you’re not facing the steep potential cost of going to dispensaries,” Storck says."
"Certainly the forms that they want to put it in are useful, and some patients don’t like to smoke. But I think the vast majority of patients do find the best benefits by smoking or inhaling vapors, and most states do allow that,” Storck says.
Storck believes individuals should be able to grow marijuana in limited amounts for their own treatment. Wisconsin is one of just 14 states that have yet to legalize medical marijuana in some form."
