A Milwaukee County Board committee unanimously approved a proposal Thursday that would place an advisory referendum on the November ballot to approve the sale, usage and taxation of recreational marijuana.
The proposal still needs to be approved by the full board.
The Committee on Judiciary, Safety and General Services opened Thursday's meeting to the general public for comments, questions and concerns.
The official question, proposed by County Supervisor John F. Weishan, would allow adults 21 and older to "engage in the personal use of marijuana, while also regulating commercial marijuana-related activities, and imposing a tax on the sale of marijuana."
