RHINELANDER - Cancer survivor and State Rep. Mary Felzkowski (R-Irma) introduced a legalization plan to help Wisconsin join other Midwestern states in making Medical marijuana legal.
Under the bill, medical marijuana would be allowed in the form of liquid, oil, pill, tincture or as a topical cream.
Only patients with serious medicals conditions such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, glaucoma, ALS, Crohn's disease, multiple sclerosis, seizure disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder would be eligible to receive treatment.
"That's what we hope to do every single day when we are in the legislature, is to change things to make people's lives better," said Felzkowski.
Felzkowski said she wants to educate the legislature.
"I want a hearing so we can educate ourselves in the legislature," said Felzkowksi. "There are people on both sides of the aisle that are for it, and people that are on both sides of the aisle that are not for it."
If passed Wisconsin will join neighboring states like Michigan, Minnesota and Illinois which all have legalized medicinal marijuana
