From The Journal
Gov. Tony Evers is shown giving the State of the State address last month. Evers will use his first state budget to propose decriminalizing possession and distribution of small amounts of marijuana, as well as legalizing medical use for certain conditions.
"MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers will propose decriminalizing marijuana in his plan for the next state budget, as part of an overhaul of marijuana laws that would legalize it for medical conditions including cancer, post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain.

"The proposal calls for allowing records to be expunged for people with previous convictions relating to marijuana possession in small amounts.

"It also would permit the possession and use of a marijuana derivative used to treat seizures, CBD oil, without a doctor’s certification.

"Information provided exclusively to the Wisconsin State Journal shows the outlines of Evers’ marijuana-related proposal for his budget, all of which will be released Feb. 28."
