Politician Info

Rep Shelia Stubbs is incredible when it comes to knowledge of marijuana reform and a consistent co-sponsor of adult use cannabis legislation.    The Madison rep has really worked hard for cannabis consumers, patients and those convicted of past cannabis crimes.   We look forward to working with her in the future and are happy to award her an A+.
