Comments

"It sounds OK to say we ought to make marijuana legal, but as you make marijuana legal you have more people living I guess what I'll call a marijuana lifestyle. I would suggest when you go home you Google Colorado and you Google homelessness and see what you come up with."

"Industrial hemp plays a large role in Wisconsin's agricultural history, and legalizing it now will only benefit Wisconsin," said Grothman. "Non-narcotic industrial hemp makes our economy stronger by providing an additional revenue stream for farmers, and is useful in other areas like construction and manufacturing."
