Had a great press conference for the Jacki Rickert Medical Cannabis Act today at the WI Capitol.
Wisconsin's Jacki Rickert Medical Marijuana Act (JRMMA) returned as the Jacki Rickert Medical Cannabis Act (JRMCA) at a Thursday press conference announcing the introduction in the Capitol's Assembly Parlor this Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013.
The sponsors of the Jacki Rickert Medical Cannabis Act, Rep. Chris Taylor (D-Madison) and Sen. Jon Erpenbach (D-Middleton) both spoke about their bill. Sen. Erpenbach spoke of the urgent need for medical cannabis in Wisconsin, citing the tenacity of patient-advocates Gary Storck and Jacki Rickert of Is My Medicine Legal YET? (IMMY), who both spoke later.
