Council member backs marijuana decriminalization

State Senator Fred Risser has introduced a bill that would decriminalize marijuna possession of 25 grams or less. The legislation has support from a number of influential politicians in Madison including Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes. The idea is supported by Sturgeon Bay Councilman Seth Wiederanders. Wiederanders says its just smart policy considering trends in other Midwest states. Where Michigan has approved use for any reason, Wisconsin still outlaws medical dispensaries.


Wiederanders was the main proponent of Sturgeon Bay's recent move to allow pot possession within residences and reduce fines for public possession to be in line with penalties for other open intoxicants.
