C+ Todd Novak (R - WI) MEDICAL USE

Wisconsin saw two versions of medical marijuana legislation for the 2019-2020 session and Rep. Novak sponsored both of them.  With 84% of his district supporting medical marijuana reform and citizen lobbyists in the district reporting this rep supported medical cannabis, we expected Rep. Novak to make a move and being one of the first Republicans in way too long to sponsor medical marijuana legislation.  In the 2021-22 session, he only sided with Republicans and only on medical, as he was absent from decriminalization measures.
