“I know that the most dangerous thing about marijuana is that it is illegal.”
Marijuana legalization offers boundless positive impacts for Wisconsin that we as a state must take advantage of, rather than continuing to be an island of prohibition. While many outdated and ill-informed prohibitionists call marijuana a gateway drug, they might not be that far off— the reality is that the full cannabis legalization is a gateway. A gateway to equity, opportunity, and moving Wisconsin forward.
I know that the most dangerous thing about marijuana is that it is illegal. In the State Assembly, I have been proud to champion for the full legalization of cannabis. From medicinal benefits, to economic opportunity, addressing racial disparities & criminal justice reform, and much more, legalization will bring multifaceted and tangible relief for our state– Wisconsin must act now. Wisconsin needs to end the senseless prohibition of cannabis and open the gates to the countless opportunities that legalization would bring to Wisconsin.
In the State Senate, I will continue to prioritize this issue and work to legalize opportunity in our state.
