wisconsin marijuana laws
Gov. Tony Evers’s first-ever budget as governor included a bold vision to improve Wisconsin’s marijuana laws. He proposed removing all penalties from cannabis possession, expungement, and a comprehensive medical cannabis program.
Unfortunately, the legislature has proven far more behind the times. The Joint Finance Committee removed the medical cannabis provisions from the proposed budget — with every Republican member voting to scrap the compassionate program.
Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R) is outright opposed to medical cannabis, and while Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R) said he is “open to medical marijuana when it is prescribed by a doctor,” he claims Evers’ proposal goes too far.
Meanwhile, in November 2018, around a million Wisconsin voters approved advisory questions on their ballots calling for more humane marijuana laws.
More than half of Wisconsin’s population saw cannabis-related measures on their ballots, and every single one of the measures passed. Medical cannabis questions received between 67% and 89% in the 11 counties and two cities where they appeared. Adult-use questions garnered between 60% and 76% of the vote.
