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.
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:
