F Tom Tiffany (R - WI) MANDATORY MINIMUMS JAIL TIME FOR POSSESSION NO MEDICAL USE

Early in 2019 he also seemed to know his Republican colleagues in the Assembly were working in their caucus to put a medical marijuana bill together.   

In December 2019, the Republicans prefiled a bill for the 2020 legislative session to create a medical marijuana program in Wisconsin (Assembly Bill 750/SB683).   AB 750 lead author was Rep. Mary Felzkowski (R-Irma) who is one of the three assembly districts in the 12th Senate District.  Senator Tiffany did not co-sponsor this legislation (SB683) in the Senate.   He Failed!

Senator Tiffany won his seat in Congress in the 7th District in a special election to replace Duffy early in 2020, but the seat is up for election again in November 2020.
