January WHN Luncheon: What’s the Future of Marijuana and CBD oil in Wisconsin?

Marijuana was among the big winners at the polls in November, with voters in counties across the state signaling their support for legalization. Backers also have a friend in Gov.-elect Tony Evers, who has said doctors should be able to use cannabis to treat patients.

Meanwhile, CBD, which is extracted from hemp plants, has been heralded as a cure-all for everything from seizures to chronic pain to better sleep. State lawmakers recently approved its use, but questions over its health benefits – and legality – remain.

A Jan. 8 Wisconsin Health News panel in Madison will take a closer look at the legal and health issues around marijuana and CBD oil – and their future in the state.

Confirmed panelists:

  • Rep.Chris Taylor, D-Madison
  • Mike Miller, American Board of Addiction Medicine
  • Additional panelists to be named soon.
