One step above failure is Speaker Robin Vos. In past news articles he has stated he would not sponsor legislation on the issue and holds up to that promise. He gives false hopes to the sick, dying and disabled of Wisconsin by saying he "supports medical marijuana". Rep. Vos has offered little more than stall tactics in even the basic steps of medical marijuana reform.
His inability to move publicly supported bipartisan medical marijuana through committee is clear that he is close to failure on the issue.

In response to Tony Evers 2019 proposal: "We're not going to decriminalize it so people can carry around baggies of weed all over the state."
When asked about his stance on medical marijuana in 2017, Vos answered: "I'm not an expert on medical marijuana, but I certainly have no problem saying, if you have a sincere medical need and your doctor prescribes it, and it's done under the normal process of any other opiate, I would be open to that."
However, Vos said he would not offer medical marijuana legislation and did not expect such a bill to advance in the Assembly.
