State Rep. Evan Goyke (18th District) on legalizing marijuana

Should Marijuana Be Legalized?

Milwaukee legislators offer their views.

1. “I don’t yet know if I support the legalization of marijuana. I am watching Washington and Colorado closely and am listening to both proponents and opponents here in Wisconsin.  I do believe there needs to be immediate changes to our enforcement and criminal justice responses to marijuana possession, which can be done without delay.”

2. I strongly support and have tried to champion changing how the criminal justice system treats marijuana possession.  Far too many young people are forever branded with the scarlet “felon” label due to a marijuana possession conviction.  If marijuana possession was treated the same as drunk driving, I believe many of the negative outcomes within the justice system would be reduced.”
