Position on Marijuana Legalization

End The Era Of Cannabis Prohibition

Responsible adults (21+) should have the freedom to use marijuana without having their life ruined. It’s time we stop using prosecution and law enforcement resources to incarcerate people for cannabis use. The impact of cannabis in Wisconsin would be tremendous. It would lead to increased revenue, more jobs in Wisconsin’s economy, and help address racial disparities and discrimination in our criminal justice system. As a County Board Supervisor, I authored a resolution that would’ve put a cannabis referendum question on the ballot. It’s time we act before Wisconsin is surrounded by legal states and misses out on this great opportunity.

Wisconsinites think cannabis should be “fully legalized and regulated like alcohol.” It’s not just great for the economy, it also has medical, environmental, social, and criminal justice benefits as well. If politicians in Madison truly care about personal liberty and freedom, they should walk the walk on cannabis reform. source

Position on Medical Marijuana
  • Health, safety, and education. Just because you can’t overdose on marijuana doesn’t mean it’s completely without risks and consequences. As a state, we must ensure top notch safety and health regulations, ensure those under 21 can’t obtain marijuana products, and educate not only the youth in our schools, but parents and businesses as well.
  • Dispensaries by Wisconsin for Wisconsin. We must ensure that we’re supporting small businesses in Wisconsin first. That means ensuring that those who want to start a dispensary have the resources and support to do so. This includes farmers looking to grow hemp and cannabis.  source
