WISCONSIN: Evers Calls to Decriminalize Recreational Marijuana
Governor Tony Evers aids said, on Sunday (2-17-2019), he is ready to give Wisconsin's citizens the right to sell and/or carry small amounts of marijuana, as well as the ability to use it for medical reasons. CBD is also currently only available under prescription, so he wants to make CBD available to all regardless.
Evers is proposing his first state budget today. His plan will create a medical marijuana program regulated by the health and agriculture departments, Wisconsin's first of it's kind. It will also propose to decriminalize marijuana as long as the manufacturers, distributors, and users handle only 25 grams or less.
25 grams of marijuana is worth about $300 and almost fills a standard-sized sandwich baggie.
As for current convictions of possessing, selling, or manufacturing 25g or fewer of marijuana, Evers plan would expunge these convictions from previous offenders criminal records.
We will not know the full details on the plan until later today.
