Lawmakers want action on medical marijuana proposal

State lawmakers are calling for action on a bill that would legalize medical marijuana in Wisconsin. 

Under the bill, patients could have access to medical marijuana with a doctor’s recommendation. 

One veteran says access to medical marijuana is a better alternative to opioid use. 

"We've all served our country and we're all honorable people and we're looking for an honorable alternative to what we've been given,” said Andrea Roberts, a marine veteran. “Being on opioid medications for long term is not a fix for anyone of us.”

The bill was introduced in February, but no action has been taken since.
