F Chuck Wichgers (R - WI) MANDATORY MINIMUMS JAIL TIME FOR POSSESSION NO MEDICAL USE

Medical sales offering conservative options for pain management was a former career before being elected in 2016, but Rep. Wichgers from Muskego offers no hope or signs of relief to the sick, dying and disabled of Wisconsin that could benefit from medical marijuana.  Early in the beginning of the 2019 session, Rep. Wichgers made a hard stance against marijuana reform.  He was a co-author of the "BAD BHO Bill" that Republicans jammed through.  The bill would have increased penalites for butane hash oil manufacturing and possession of butane hash oil products.

Position on Medical Marijuana

March 2019 With regard to medicinal marijuana, I believe it is premature to consider legalization before its efficacy is confirmed scientifically. Only then, and with the assurance that it would be regulated as a Schedule II drug, would I support legalization.
