On Sunday, a group of medical marijuana supporters orchestrated the Madison Global Cannabis Freedom March to bolster support for a bill which would legalize medical marijuana in Wisconsin.
The march was part of a country-wide effort organized by NORML, which is working to get medical marijuana legalized in all 50 states.
While the turnout for the event was not as large as expected, about 30 people, they were still able to share their message about the Jacki Rickert Medical Marijuana Act. The proposed bill would legalize medical marijuana in Wisconsin, creating a list of qualifying conditions for medical marijuana use including HIV, Crohn’s, Hepatitis C, Alzheimer’s, glaucoma, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, and cancer.
Under the bill, caregivers would be allowed to grow 12 plants and possess 3 ounces of marijuana at a time per patient. Each caregiver would be allowed to take care of 5 patients.
