Several hundred rally at State Capitol to legalize medical marijuana
Several hundred people attended a rally at the State Capitol Sunday for a bill to legalize marijuana to treat serious illnesses.
Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Madison, and Sen. Jon Erpenbach, D-Waunakee, are sponsoring the measure.
It would let patients or caregivers grow small amounts of marijuana for medical use and those who can't grow it themselves could have it dispensed.
Thirteen other states allow medical marijuana.
