Sturgeon Bay to vote on pot

Voters in Sturgeon Bay will have a chance in April to vote on legalizing medicinal and recreational use of marijuana.

By a voice-vote with only two members expressing opposition, the council voted Tuesday to put the two questions on the April ballot.


Council members Barbara Allman and David Ward spoke in opposition to recreational use of marijuana. Allman explained she supports medicinal marijuana but not recreational use.

Ward spoke of his own family’s experience with alcohol.

Council member Kelly Avenson stated the two advisory questions give voters the opportunity to express an opinion and is not necessarily a reflection of support for marijuana use.
