Politician Info
A- Romaine Quinn (R - WI) LEGALIZE, TAX, AND REGULATE MEDICAL USE

The 2019 GOP Spring Survey in his district showed 67% of his base supported medical marijuana and Quinn did end up co-sponsoring the Republican attempt to creata a medical marijuana program.   Since elected in 2014 Rep. Quinn has seemed like a marijuana reformer.   He recieves his A- grade mostly because of the words he has been saying, direction he is heading and because voters in his district tell us he supports marijuana reform!  

The two issues we need to confront are

1) Medical Marijuana Bills are stuck in committee

2) We need a Republican to co-sponsor recreational marijuana

Holds office State Assembly District 75

Position on Marijuana Legalization

Rep. Quinn: Maybe? That is an answer you’d expect from a politician, right?  This is why I prefer to go through the hearing process before deciding on difficult bills: I say maybe because I feel that I really do need to know more information before saying yes or no, and I’d like to hear from some experts.  By opening marijuana up for recreational use, we would need to know for certain that law enforcement would have the tools necessary to ensure public safety.  Being able to detect when people are driving impaired and knowing the quantity of THC in the marijuana being consumed (similar to measuring alcohol content) would need to be easily accessible.  But when it is all said and done, if you continue to go to work every day and take care of yourself and your family and don’t hurt anyone else, is it really the government’s business telling you what you can or can’t put in your body, especially while in your own home?
