WI Health News Event: What’s the future of marijuana and CBD in Wisconsin?

12/26/2018 1:03 PM | Jamie Michael (Administrator)

Marijuana was among the big winners at the polls in November, with voters in counties across the state signaling their support for legalization. Backers also have a friend in Gov.-elect Tony Evers, who has said doctors should be able to use cannabis to treat patients. 

Meanwhile, CBD, a cannabis compound, has been heralded as a cure-all for everything from seizures to chronic pain to better sleep. Lawmakers have approved its use, but questions over its health benefits - and legality - remain.

A Jan. 8 Wisconsin Health News panel in Madison will take a closer look at the legal and health issues around marijuana and CBD – and their future in the state. 

Panelists:

·       Dr. Mike Miller, American Board of Addiction Medicine

·       Michael Queensland, Senior Staff Attorney, Wisconsin Legislative Council

·       Rep. Chris Taylor, D-Madison

·       Sen. Pat Testin, R-Stevens Point
