Wisconsin reform organizations, working together, have worked to set up this goal.
We hope to gain your support in working towards putting up a billboard in the Waukesha/Brookfield/West Allis area, near districts of Sen Vukmir and Sen Lazich.
Medical Marijuana is supported by a majority of Wisconsin voters, but this medicine is being blocked by politicians. Patients are needlessly suffering. Your donation can make a big difference.
The primary goal is to put pressure on politicians who are against medical cannabis, and this is a very prominent spot for billboards, near two committee member districts. A secondary goal is to have residual effect on 2014 elections.
To achieve this goal, we are hoping to top $7500 through crowdfunding. We hope to run the billboard for 4-6 weeks before the November 2014 election.
We hope you will donate to this campaign.
The billboard will be digital, present a picture of Lazich and Vukmir with text of “Who is stopping medical cannabis in Wisconsin? Sen Lazich is… Sen Vukmir is…” It will have reference to SB363.

Wisconsin NORML is currently working towards a strategy that will push the Cannabis movement to where we need to be in Wisconsin, forward! We currently have 3 local chapters; Madison NORML, Northern WI NORML, and Southeast WI NORML if you are in these areas or interested in more information. Please, follow the links to their sites and join a local force to help become the change we need.
We will be utilizing Wisconsin NORML once again. Our goal is to change laws regarding Cannabis and Hemp to reflect the will of the people and also for the best interest of the future landscape of Wisconsin!
This will eventually be your source for Cannabis news, info and events in Wisconsin. Much more to come, stay tuned…
Until then, check out our Facebook page.

The inside scoop from activists in Madison is that the 2013-2014 Medical Marijuana bill will be introduced by Representative Christine Taylor and Senator Jon Erpenbach on Thursday October 3rd, 2013 in the Assembly Parlor at the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison at 10:30am
Although this is not official and has not been confirm by this author, the following post on the Wisconsin NORML Facebook Group indicates we are on the right track with this early information. Here is the post:
Hey , the new Wisconsin medical cannabis act is rolling out Thursday at 10:30am and we need lots of professionals there, media, this is info from a meeting today with Gary Storck, Craig Trost ( Rep Taylors aide), Kelly (Sen Erpenbachs aide) and Greg Kinsely.
Pass this on please have a good day we were asked to dress to impress!
If more information becomes available or changes, we will be sure to keep you updated. See you at the Capitol Building Assembly Parlor at 10:30am this coming Thursday, October 3rd, 2013.
Just as a reminder, support from all over Wisconsin is needed. Please contact your elected official continually regarding the topic of drug policy reform. Currently there is a support page/signature petition that activists are using statewide to increase awareness of the upcoming act, as well as document support in the districts of constituents.
