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"> D.C. Council unanimously backed medical marijuana on Tuesday.
