Rep. Krug could do a much better job communicating with constituents in the district about the issue. We have mixed reports from people in his district on what Krug is willing to support. What we do know for sure is that shortly after being re-elected in 2018 he announced to expect Republican bill(s) this session on medical marijuana but as the session lingered on and constituents contacted him, he seemed to be silent.
His Senate District is that of fellow Republican Testin, who did sponsor the Bi-partisan Medical Marijuana Bill that allows home grow and smoking products. He was also a late comer to the game on the Republican bill it seems and was not an author or original sponsor in 2019, but was an original bill co-sponsor of medical marijuana in 2021-22.

Jan 2019 Neither representative endorsed the legalization of pot for recreational uses. “I would say that right now Wisconsin is not ready to go for recreational marijuana. I don’t think that’s something we are looking at,” said Krug.
Jan 2019 During a news conference introducing a proposed tax break for middle-class residents, Representatives Scott Krug of Nekoosa said he can see the benefits of the drug.
“It gives families a chance to have options of their own choosing without having to worry about government jumping into their health care all the time,” said Krug, who worked with Democrats to help write the state’s first CBD oil bills. “Freedom in health care really plays well into the argument for CBD oil and a medical marijuana system that’s regulated through medical practices.”
“We will see some Republican-sponsored bills this session on medical marijuana,” added Krug.
