In a unanimous vote, the County Board of Milwaukee in Wisconsin has approved a proposal this week that will place an advisory referendum on the November ballot to approve the sale, taxation, as well as usage of recreational cannabis.

County Supervisor John F. Weishan proposed the official question at The Committee on Judiciary, Safety and General Services’ meeting on Thursday. The question would allow adults 21 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.”

It was in the summer of 2016 that Marquette University Law School found through a poll that 59% of the voters in the state of Wisconsin believed that marijuana should be legalized and regulated like alcohol.
