Bipartisan proposal to decriminalize up to 28 grams of cannabis introduced Thursday, Nov. 16, 2021 at WI Capitol
A statewide bipartisan cannabis decriminalization bill was announced today at the State Capitol. Downside is if adopted, which I see as unlikely, it would standardize fines for up to 28 grams statewide, meaning that high-population locales like Dane County, Milwaukee County and other places that have adopted low or nominal penalties would have to charge at the state level with higher penalties. This would roll back a lot of recent progress on reducing fines and penalties for cannabis. One good provision is it would repeal the penalty making second & subsequent offenses a felony.
