MADISON - When Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signs into law a bill making way for recreational marijuana use in our neighbor to the south, his signature will put Wisconsin on an island surrounded by legal weed.
Three out of the four states that border Wisconsin — Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota — have now legalized marijuana use and two of them allow residents to purchase and consume cannabis for any reason.
While more and more state legislatures are embracing legal marijuana for medical or recreational reasons — 33 in all — Wisconsin isn't likely to anytime soon.
