The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Wisconsin
Cannabis in Wisconsin is illegal with the exception of non-psychoactive medical CBD oil. Various fines and prison terms apply to cannabis possession, sale, or cultivation. CBD oil was legalized in 2014, but under tight controls and for a very limited number of conditions, primarily seizures.
Wisconsin’s first medical cannabis law (AB 726) took effect in 2014, protecting an extremely narrow class of people. Otherwise known as a CBD-only bill, patients must be diagnosed with a seizure disorder to receive legal protection and may only possess forms of cannabis that do not produce psychoactive effects.
On April 17, 2017, Gov. Scott Walker signed Act 4, which expands the state’s existing limited medical cannabis law, Lydia’s law, enacted in 2014. The original law allowed patients with documentation of a seizure disorder to possess CBD treatments, but it did not legalize the production of CBD products in the state. Act 4 expands the program to protect all patients who possess CBD and have a letter from their physician. Unfortunately, it remains illegal to produce or distribute CBD products.
- Must have a letter from a physician
- May only possess forms of cannabis that do not produce a psychoactive effect
Marijuana possession and sale (and sometimes home cultivation) is legal in a growing number of states, first in Colorado and Washington. In some states, like Wisconsin, it is becoming permissible to allow the medicinal use of cannabis. While state law technically permits the use of medicinal marijuana in Wisconsin, the statute is very limited. Only use of cannabidiol in a form without a psychoactive effect is allowed, and only to treat a seizure disorder.
