Eau Claire County (WQOW) – Voters in Eau Claire County had the chance to let their voices heard in Madison on the topic of marijuana and gerrymandering.
Voters have decided they want lawmakers in Madison to take a closer look at the legalization of marijuana – voting it should be legal.
There were three options on the ballot – A) cannabis should be legal for adults, 21 years of age and older for recreational or medical use, taxed and regulated like alcohol with the proceeds from the taxes used for education healthcare and infrastructure in WI. B) Be legal for medical purposes only and available only be prescription through a medical dispensary. C) Remain a criminally illegal drug as provided under current law.
This is a non-binding resolution meant to show lawmakers how voters feel about the topic.
Voters also urged lawmakers to create a non-partisan body to draw legislative maps. A lawsuit over Wisconsin’s maps was heard earlier this year before the United States Supreme Court.
