What is the legal status of cannabis in Wisconsin?
In 2014, the Wisconsin State Legislature passed AB 726, which removed criminal penalties for patients of epileptic disorders who use CBD oil to treat their condition. However, the law does not specify amounts or methods of production, and does not allow any amount of THC whatsoever to be consumed or possessed. This was seen as a largely symbolic ordinance because to be legal, the CBD product would have to be FDA approved. Due to stringent regulations such as this, no doctors in the state would “prescribe” CBD.
Earlier this year, in March 2017, SB 10 amended AB 726, providing doctors with much more impetus and room to recommend their patients to use CBD oil to treat epilepsy. CBD oil derived from industrial hemp is 100% legal in all 50 states, as this plant never has more than trace amounts of THC, but is generally rich in CBD and other cannabinoids. Additionally, it can be delivered to your door from an online store, with no legal question marks.
