Politician Info
D- Dave Murphy (R - WI) MEDICAL USE

Unfortunately Republican Dave Murphy from Appleton has not sponsored any marijuana reform legislation since being elected to the State Assembly in 2012.

During 2019, the Assembly Republicans circulated and prefiled a bill for the 2020 legislative session to create a medical marijuana program in Wisconsin (Assembly Bill 750) which Assembly Rep. Murphy did not co-sponsor. 

Rep. Murphy could save his failing grade by helping the medical marijuana bills "stuck" in committee and being denied a public hearing.   Although Rep. Murphy is not a member of the Assembly Committee on State Affairs, we would ask constituents in his district to call Murphy and ask him to support AB 750 and call on the committee members to hold a public hearing.
