Student encourgaes voting on medical marijuana referendum
October 7, 2010
On Tuesday, Nov. 2 there will be a referendum on legalizing medical marijuana. This referendum will be on the ballot for all people who vote in River Falls. This referendum serves as an advisory to state government that the citizens of River Falls support medical marijuana.
The referendum reads: “Should the Wisconsin Legislature enact legislation allowing residents with debilitating medical conditions to acquire and possess marijuana for medical purposes if supported by their physician?”
By voting “yes” on this referendum you are supporting keeping medical matters between a patient and their doctor. A medical doctor is the best person to determine proper treatment for their patients, not the government. I encourage you to join me in voting “yes” on the medical marijuana referendum on Tuesday, Nov. 2.
