Push for marijuana referendums on election day

MADISON (WKOW) — Next Tuesday is a big day for people who want Wisconsin to legalize marijuana.

Sixteen counties in the state and two cities have referendum questions on the ballot asking whether the state should legalize either medicinal or recreational marijuana.

At the State Capitol Wednesday, one former heroin addict says cannabis saved his life, since he stopped taking opiates.

“Us Wisconsinites are tired of going to the doctor and our only option is being prescribed dangerous, addicting and potentially dangerous pharmaceuticals,” Brian Seamonson, with Madison NORML, said.

In our area, voters in Dane and Rock counties will see marijuana questions on their ballots on November 6th.

The referendums are not binding, just a way to get a sense for how voters feel about the topic.
