Rep. Stuck from Appleton has served three terms and been supportive of cannabis reform and this past session sponsored bills on adult use and medical marijuana. She is in constant communication on the issue, returns phone calls and listens to voters on the issue. Her "response" letters to constituents are not form letters and she offers next steps of action to help reform move through the legislative process.
As Rep. Stuck has announced she will not seek re-election in the assembly and is off to seek a congressional seat. We are happy to say thank you for your work and give her an A+

Legalizing and regulating use of marijuana by adults would have cascading positive benefits for the people and communities of this state. As a medical alternative, marijuana could save lives and alleviate our over reliance on opioids. The taxes collected from cannabis sales could be used to fund any number of projects as could the money saved from the criminal justice system.
Decriminalizing simple possession would be a step in the right direction. It would eliminate the need to prosecute and incarcerate individuals for many marijuana-related crimes which would be a boon for those using marijuana as well as the tax payers.
Convictions can loom large over an individuals future. Allowing them the opportunity to remove that burden after legalization or decriminalization would be an incredible boost to individuals and the communities they live in.
There have been various studies showing medical benefits including pain relief, seizure mitigation and eases anxiety/stress. Allowing medical professionals to use an alternative to highly addictive opioids would be a huge boost for many of our ailing citizens.
