St. Croix County Board postpones vote on marijuana referendum

St. Croix County (WQOW) — Voters in St. Croix County will not be weighing in on the legalization of marijuana this fall.

Tuesday, the St. Croix County Board voted 9-8 to postpone putting an advisory referendum question before voters in November. The referendum would have posed three questions: should marijuana only be legal for medical purposes, both medical and recreational use, or should it remain illegal?

A board member told News 18 that roughly 15 people spoke in favor of the proposal, but members wanted to gather more information before approving it for the ballot. The board member said the postponement effectively kills the chances of it getting on the ballot, because the deadline is August 22. 

As News 18 has reported, Eau Claire County is considering a similar referendum question. The county board will vote on adding it to the ballot August 21.
