F Scott Allen (R - WI) MANDATORY MINIMUMS JAIL TIME FOR POSSESSION NO MEDICAL USE

Rep. Allen: We should point out that Rep. Allen is opposed to legalizing recreational marijuana, but believes there might be some room for expanded research into the use of cannabis for medical purposes. “For decades, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been the agency which oversees scientific processes into the safety and efficacy of medicines,” said Rep. Allen.  “Now policymakers are being asked to preempt that process and legalize a drug for medicinal or recreational use. We need more information. The FDA and federal law enforcement can serve as conduits in gathering relevant data. Congress needs to take action to expedite relevant research.”

August 2019 Representative Scott Allen (R-Waukesha) began circulating a letter to colleagues in the Wisconsin state legislature asking federal officials to streamline medical research and collect data surrounding cannabis and marijuana. This guy has recently hosted a “SAM” Smart Approach to Marijuana seminar. SAM are bad guys pretending to help conservative legislators navigate the coming legalization issues and he bought right into it. The “webinar” was a disaster. As far as tax revenue goes, that is another issue in legalization and Rep. Allen has indicated sin tax in general should not be used for harm preventative or education, but rather seen as a source of profit.
