Senator Agard: Response to Speaker Vos’ Medical Marijuana Comments


MADISON- Today, Speaker Robin Vos claimed that Republicans are working privately on a medical marijuana proposal. Vos has voiced support for medical marijuana in previous sessions, but brought a bill for even a public hearing in the Assembly, the body he is in charge of. Senate Democratic Leader Melissa Agard (D-Madison) released the following statement in response to Vos’ statements:

“We’ve seen this story before – but actions speak louder than words. Session after session, the Speaker has come forward with empty promises but no tangible steps toward any form of legal cannabis Wisconsin. The people of Wisconsin, who overwhelmingly support the full legalization of marijuana, deserve better than this political game Speaker Vos continues to play.

“During his 10 years as Speaker, Vos’ track record is one of prohibition not progress.”
