There may be dozens of bills being considered in the Senate and Assembly this week, but one much-talked-about proposal won't make it onto the calendar.
A bill aimed at legalizing medical marijuana in Wisconsin will not get a vote in the Legislature this spring, Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Madison, said Tuesday night.
Pocan said he broke the news to bill supporters earlier Tuesday. But he also assured them that effort has already had a lot of success - including a strong lead supporter in the Senate - and can still be taken up in the future.
For example, debate over the idea in places like Washington, D.C., went on for years before the http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/04/20/AR2010042004751.html"> D.C. Council unanimously backed medical marijuana on Tuesday.
