Cannabis is on the ballot in Wisconsin in 2018, with 16 counties and 2 cities asking voters to weigh in on referenda questions related to legalizing marijuana in some way. Surveys show a majority of voters support legalizing and regulating cannabis similarly to alcohol.
Appleton voters don’t have a way to express their opinions on this issue (Outagamie County leaders voted against adding a question to the November ballot), but two members of the Appleton Common Council want to put the City on record. Aldermen Christine Williams and Patti Coenen have introduced a resolution in support of Wisconsin legalizing marijuana for medical uses.
The resolution will be considered by the Appleton Board of Health on Wed, Oct 10 at 7AM. Hear more about the effort, and what barriers exist, in this interview.
