With all Ninety-nine (99) Assembly seats up for election, Democrats have 86 candidates on the ballot. The 10 Incumbent candidates supporting legalization is a great number, which means a legalization bill will see the light of day in the 2021-22 session. With sixty-two (62) candidates in the Democratic party running on or supporting ending prohibition and allowing the adult use of cannabis in Wisconsin, it is a sure sign that the caucus should take the issue with high priority!

Of course due to gerrymandering it is highly unlikely that all these candidates will take the seat and they admit it in their campaigns, but that did not stop them from running.

We examined the Republican Assembly candidates also which had a slightly lower yield with only one (1) Incumbent and sixteen (16) other Republican candidates calling for the end of the war on marijuana in Wisconsin, as it is just a plant!

No matter the results of the upcoming election, marijuana reform is going to be an ongoing issue in Wisconsin for years to come. To address the comprehensive nature of marijuana laws, we need legislators who sponsored the various bills throughout the 2019-20 session to work together towards sensible cannabis reform. Please sign and share the petition below help accomplish our collective goals.
