Rep. McGuire did not co-sponsor the “Erpenbach/Testin/Taylor Medical Marijuana Bill AB570.
Rep. McGuire does hold a seat on the Assembly Committee of State Affairs which will be the committee to handle medical marijuana for 2019-2020 legislative session.
We must mention the Republican legislative attempt to create a medical marijuana program (AB750). We found that Rep. Tip McGuire did not join his Senator Bob Wirch (D-Somers) in co-sponsoring AB750. If Rep. McGuire sponsored either of these pieces of legislation the committee would tip from opposed to supportive, in theory. For being the only Democrat on the Committee to NOT sponsor a bill this session, we grade Rep. Tip McGuire a D+ but with an extra credit assignment due yet this session, Rep. McGuire could tip the scales and get and A for effort by achieving a public hearing on medical marijuana in the commitee he is a member of.
November 2018, 88% of Kenosha County voters supported an advisory referendum to legalize medical marijuana.
