C- John Jagler (R - WI) MEDICAL USE

Rep. Jagler has been "swayed" to support medical marijuana and now sits on the committee for the 2019-20 and again in 2022 that medical marijuana bills.   As a Republican he did not officially co-sponsor any medical marijuana legislation, but he did express the need for a public hearing on adult use / recreational marijuana and with a little work he could easily be an A+ legislator on medical marijuana and lead the conversation on cannabis reform within the Republican Party.

In 2022, he kind of shocked us and reversed his tune a little as he was on the committee that held a public hearing on medical marijuana and he read into testimony of the Wisconsin Medical Society, which was against the bill.

Jagler said he’d been “swayed” on the issue of medical marijuana, noting that 60 percent of people in his district were in favor of legalizing it for medical purposes.

“That opened my eyes to it,” said Jagler...

“I’m open to having discussions, but it’s not time yet on full legalization,” said Jagler, noting the issue was a non-starter in the Legislature.(5/5/19)
