Monona alders meet March 20 to hash out pot ordinance language

The campaign to reduce Monona pot fines to $1 plus costs continues Monday, March 20 at the Monona city council meeting, when alders will be debating then voting on the wording of the amended ordinance.

Public support has been critical in moving this issue forward through a long campaign that first started back in 2015. At about the same time, Fitchburg officials quietly lowered their pot fine, the highest in the state, to $1 plus costs. Monona chose a different route.

If you can make it to the meeting Monday night and register or even speak in support, please attend. Having a room packed with supporters has been key in beating back attempts by opponents to block this change. Please join Madison NORML members, Monona residents and other interested parties in helping to put this one away. If alders vote to accept the language, they will vote, likely in April, on passage of the amended ordinance.
