In medical marijuana battle, Wisconsin likely won't go the way of Illinois anytime soon

Illinois became the 20th state to legalize medical marijuana Thursday, joining Michigan as the second of Wisconsin’s neighboring states to do so.
Patients seeking treatment still face an uphill battle to make the drug legal for medicinal purposes in Wisconsin, but that’s not stopping several state Democrats from trying.
Rep. Chris Taylor, D-Madison, and Sen. Jon Erpenbach, D-Middleton, are co-sponsoring a bill that Taylor said is still in the drafting phase and should be ready to introduce in the fall legislative session.
Under the bill, medicinal marijuana could be prescribed to patients with cancer, glaucoma, AIDS-HIV, post traumatic stress disorder, seizures, severe pain and nausea, and muscle spasms.
Taylor said the bill would allow patients to grow up to 10 marijuana plants and have up to 3 ounces in their possession. Patients who choose not to grow their own would be able to purchase medicinal marijuana with a doctor’s prescription at state-regulated, non-profit “compassionate care centers.”
“It would be fairly tightly controlled,” Taylor said. “Given that, I would hope some Republicans would support this.”
