Politician Info
C Ron Tusler (R - WI) MEDICAL USE

Elected in 2018, Tusler a Republican from Harrison did not sponsor any legislation on marijuana reform in 2019-2020.

But he earned some extra credit points in 2019 by actually calling a voter in his district back after they sent an email to them regarding AB 570, the medical marijuana bill with home grows and smoking allowed, adding onto the potential "YES" votes to this piece of legislation.

His ability to gain extra credits would be to help move publicly supported bipartisan medical marijuana through committee.

Position on Marijuana Legalization

Oct 2018: Would you support changing state law to legalize marijuana and/or cannabis products? If so, under what conditions? If not, why?

Tusler: Unsure. The preservation of human life is very important to me. The number of accidental deaths on the highways as a result of intoxicated driving from marijuana use has escalated dramatically in states that have legalized marijuana. I’d like to see this issue resolved in other states before our citizens die.

Position on Medical Marijuana

Oct 2019 (Before Republican Bill AB750 was out and only the home grow bill AB570 was in play)  A Northern Wisconsin NORML Field Activist spoke with Rep Tusler October 10th, 2019 regarding legalization of medical cannabis.  He stated if a vote were taken today, he would vote in favor.  However, he said one thing that concerns him is some doctors at The Medical College of Wisconsin in Madison are opposed to it, saying it is dangerous for teenagers and they apparently feel it would just lead to abuse, just like we have with alcohol.
