MADISON – Gary Storck, President of the Wisconsin chapter of the
National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) announced
today that the group’s television ad supporting AB554/SB368 the Jacki
Rickert Medical Marijuana Act (JRMMA), will begin airing this weekend in
parts of Wisconsin.

“Thanks to some generous donations from $1 on up, Wisconsin NORML will
begin airing a tv ad showing the faces of Wisconsin patients who can
benefit from this compassionate exemption”, said Storck. “Wisconsin
residents who believe its time to protect patients using medical
cannabis from arrest and jail need to contact their state legislators
now or the issue will have to wait until the 2011-2012 session. Many
patients will not live that long. We hope the ad will inspire citizens
to urge the JRMMA be passed, This Bill, This Time!”

Storck, who appears at the beginning and end of the 30-second commercial
is a longtime Wisconsin medical cannabis patient and advocate as well as
the director of communications for the Wisconsin medical cannabis
advocacy group, “is My Medicine Legal YET?” (IMMLY).

The ad was created for the group by Steve Swain of No-Koast Productions.
“There’s no better feeling than helping others who deserve it, but
couldn’t help themselves,” Swain noted.
