Milwaukee County Supervisor John F. Weishan wants to put a referendum on the November 6 ballot to legalize the commercial sale and taxation of marijuana.
"It's time for Wisconsin to join the many states across the country that have legalized marijuana and benefited from the revenue that comes with commercial sale and taxation of one of America's largest cash crops," Supervisor Weishan said.
The proposed referendum would read, "Do you favor allowing adults 21 years of age 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?"
Weishan's proposal will be considered on Friday, May 11 and committee meetings on the issue are open to the public and encourage public comment.
