The Wisconsin legislation to allow medicinal CBD use for any medical condition so long as the patient is certified by a physician has unanimously passed the Assembly and has been signed by Gov. Scott Walker.
While the legislation does extend the state medical cannabis regime, products with THC are still not permitted for use, and the manufacture of CBD is still outlawed in the state. An amendment proposed by Rep. Chris Taylor to permit CBD production and distribution in Wisconsin was voted down – meaning patients must still acquire CBD products online or out-of-state. A bill providing a more far-reaching medical cannabis regime have been introduced in both houses of the state legislature and have been moved to the respective health committees. This measure will allow the set up of dispensaries and allow for home grows.
