A Door County supervisor believes the time has come to give residents a chance to vote on legalizing marijuana. Counties throughout Wisconsin are considering non-binding referendums on whether the medical or recreational use of marijuana should be legal in Wisconsin. Door County’s Board of Supervisors has not decided whether to hold such an advisory vote. But Supervisor Megan Lundhal, who has a background in health and wellness, believes the time has come to gauge public opinion.
Lundahl says with neighboring states, such as Michigan, looking at making marijuana legal the pressure is on county supervisors and state lawmakers to determine public opinion on the matter.
