Support for LRB-3790 (Now Senate Bill 790) to decriminalize marijuana in Wisconsin will be bi-partisan effort lead by Republicans.
As one of our top priorities, decriminalization at the state wide level is long over due!
This bill will:
Remove criminal penalties for possession of up to 14g of marijuana across Wisconsin.
Create a statewide $100-$250 fine for possession of up to 14g of marijuana (most counties/municipalities that have decriminalized marijuana currently have fines over $250)
Allow counties/municipalities to further decriminalize up to 28g (1 ounce) of marijuana (currently counties/municipalities can only decriminalize up to 25g, three grams short of an ounce; an ounce is a very common amount purchased for personal consumption)
Ensure no one will get a felony conviction for possessing an ounce or less of marijuana (currently, anyone with a previous marijuana conviction will be charged with a felony for possessing any amount of marijuana, even in decriminalized counties/municipalities)
Encourage an end to drug testing at jobs that don’t involve dangerous labor by offering liability protection to companies that don’t test for off-hours cannabis use
Send a message to your representatives to support the new bill to decriminalize up to half an ounce of marijuana in Wisconsin.
