In past sessions medical marijuana bills died under the watch of Rep. Sanfelippo from New Berlin. As Chair of the Assembly Committee on Health, medical marijuana was not even allowed a public hearing under his watch. In the 2019-20 session, medical marijuana advocates had high hopes as medical marijuana reform was not directed to his committee. He obviously did not co-sponsor the Republican GOP medical marijuana bill (AB 683) and he continues to give public statements oppossing any marijuana reform.
