Egg Harbor, Sturgeon Bay approve marijuana referendum questions

Voters in Egg Harbor and Sturgeon Bay overwhelmingly approved a referendum question supporting medicinal marijuana but were more divided when it came to its recreational use.

 

In Egg Harbor, 82 percent of voters support marijuana use for medicinal purposes, but that number dropped to 55 percent in favor of adults 21 and older using it for recreational purposes. Sturgeon Bay voters approved marijuana’s medicinal use by a 77-22 percent margin. Its recreational use was also approved by a slim 50-49 percent margin.

 

These votes do not make marijuana legal in Egg Harbor and Sturgeon Bay, but places it with other municipalities in the state that have passed similar measures for the Wisconsin Legislature to consider.
