WISCONSIN: The ballot in the April 2014 election will ask voters in Dane County whether the state should legalize marijuana for any purpose, thanks to a resolution passed by a vote of 29-0.
Testifying in favor of the resolution, Dane County resident Cliff Tomasini said legal marijuana could create green jobs.
“There’s a very stable industry of professionals who take their jobs seriously in the medical marijuana industry, which his company works with,” he said. “This is coming whether we like it or not. If we don’t participate in this industry now, others will. Chinese companies, companies in other countries will compete with us.”
“The voice of America is getting louder, and the voice of Dane County needs to be heard,” said Nate Peterson, president of Madison NORML.
