Tim Ramthum statements about marijuana reform come in August after his primary victory and with confidence that he will be elected in November, as he faced no democratic challenger. The report broke as Fond du Lac county discussed placing marijuana referendums on the ballot. Ramthun (from Campbellsport) said action needs to be taken at the state level, adding “We can’t say let’s all do it and it will be OK. We need structure and control."
During 2019, his fellow Assembly Republicans prefiled a bill for the 2020 legislative session to create a medical marijuana program in Wisconsin (Assembly Bill 750) which he failed to co-sponsor. Rep. Ramthun failed to take any action at providing the structure and control of marijuana reform at the state level this session.
