MADISON: On Thursday night, July 15, the Dane County Board will vote on a resolution that would put an advisory referendum on medical marijuana on county ballots in the general election on Nov. 2. The vote to adopt Res. 70, 10-11, Referendum on Medical Marijuana by the full 37-member panel is expected early in Thursday’s 7pm board meeting.
If passed, the resolution would place the following question before voters:
“Should the Wisconsin Legislature enact legislation allowing residents with debilitating medical conditions to acquire and possess marijuana for medical purposes if supported by their physician?”
The meeting commences at 7:00 pm in Room 201 of the City-County Building 210 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in downtown Madison. Supporters are urged to attend and register in support. Those who cannot make it should contact their County Supervisor and ask they vote for the medical marijuana advisory referendum resolution.
