Tell Fitzgerald We Want Legalized Pot

After seeing news reports of Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald’s dismissive response to a reporter’s question about medical cannabis legislation in the new legislative session that begins January 7, I submitted a letter to the editor of the Wisconsin State Journal. The letter was published in the State Journal’s online edition Friday afternoon and appeared in print editions on Saturday, Dec. 29, 2018.

The letter’s sentiments were apparently very popular with readers of the Wisconsin State Journal, who made it the most popular letter to the editor for a couple days and remained in the top 5 for several more.

Online, the letter drew a lot of readers, staying in the top five most popular letters for several days including a couple where it was the number one most popular letter.

The letter concludes with a call for citizens to contact Sen. Fitzgerald, and this is where you, the reader, come in:

Please give the senator a call at 608-266-5660 and tell him the people have spoken and it’s time to get out of the way

Below is the letter as it appeared in print in the State Journal on Saturday, December 29, 2018:

  1. I can personally confirm the phone given is indeed correct. I called earlier yesterday afternoon ! To my surprise the office did indeed answer and did listen to me. As a recovering meth addict who suffers from ADHD and bi polar disorder as well … I can tell you very much that CANNABIS can play a large role in helping the symptoms of manic phases and even depression .

    I have had countless times in my road to recovery where I just needed to simply let my mind calm down for a minute ! Cannabis does this for me. During the winter I fall into depression and getting out of bed to go to work or even shower can be the complete bane of my existence . Cannabis has helped me so much during those months as well to simply get the courge to face the day with some sort of optimistic view. As well allowing for REAL rest not drowned in sorrow not move out of bed for 16 hours rest.

    And last but very not least my meth addiction. I am now 3 yr. 4 months off the meth. I almost lapsed during my second year into recovery , instead i reached for CANNABIS, calmed down called my fiance and explained my feelings and why I wanted to use meth. After talking I no longer felt the urge and continue my life. I could have made a fast bad decision , but cannabis allowede the time to reconsider and make a better choice . The plant is a GOD SEND.

    End prohibition now! F#$* the war on drugs oh I’m sorry I mean war on people . Let’s go Wisconsin it’s time !

    1. I think “Godsend” is a good choice of words for this plant. Your experience certainly demonstrates this. And we’ve been doing nothing but courting bad karma ever since 1934 by spurning and demonizing cannabis the way we have. 🙁
