Loudenbeck is from Clinton and lives down there next to the state on our Southern border that now has legalized marijuana. At least this Rep was not so quick to dismiss recreational marijuana and just say NO after the 2018 referendums. Rock County in her district sent a clear message when 69% of voters supported legalizing adult use marijuana, taxing and regulating cannabis like alcohol. Rep. Loudenbeck did co-sponsor the Republican bill to start a medical marijuana program and look for her to take the lead on next session on discussing decriminalization and legalization.
