Legal pot a moneymaker for local governments

Wisconsin communities, including those in Door and Kewaunee counties, could benefit from legal cannabis sales like those in Illinois.  The first two days that marijuana could be purchased legally in Illinois generated $5.4-million dollars, with many buyers driving south from Wisconsin.  Taxes on legal cannabis mean new revenues for state, county and local governments.  Sturgeon Bay City Alderman Seth Wiederanders says that's something local communities could benefit from if Wisconsin legalized marijuana.

 


Wiederanders also favors legal marijuana for its health properties for people undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer, glaucoma or other diseases.
