Medical cannabis activists found lobbyists had taken their spot as a missing permit app canceled a peaceful two decade old medical cannabis vigil.
MADISON -- Cannabis activists found themselves shut out of their traditional spot outside the Governor's State of the State speeches Wednesday night after Capitol Police claimed they had never received an application for a permit from the Madison chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML). Since the early 1990s, medical cannabis activists have stood vigil outside each annual "State of the State" (SOTS) address. The late Madison activist Ben Masel, a frequent Capitol visitor, began the tradition many years ago.
