Legalizing Marijuana Oil Resurfaces In Wisconsin Legislature

Wisconsin lawmakers have revived a bill that would allow marijuana oil use with a doctor’s approval. Increased access to CBD oil would also take place. This requires changing the current state law that has control over the governing of marijuana oil.

Lydia’s Law was passed in 2014 but restricts the use of marijuana oil to certain populations, according to Wisconsin Public Radio. Since the current law in the state requires FDA approval for prescriptions, patients with doctor-approval are having a hard time accessing their medicine. Making it legal to possess in Wisconsin is legal with doctor-approval is what the bill is aiming for.

Sally Schaeffer, Lydia’s Law namesake’s mother, said, “Wisconsin needs to fix this mistake. No smoke and mirrors any more, no loopholes. We need to fix it. Give people what you promised to them three years ago when Lydia’s Law was enacted.”

According to Senator Van Wanggaard, Lydia’s Law has been ineffective. He is co-sponsoring the bill with Representative Scott Krug.

To clarify the bill’s purpose, it will not legalize manufacturing or selling CBD oil in Wisconsin. It will merely prevent prosecution for possession. A Senate committee vote is scheduled for February 2 on the matter.
