Evers’ budget includes policy to legalize medical marijuana and de-criminalize up to 25 grams of recreational pot.
“I think the discussion about medical marijuana should take place outside the budget,” Kerkman said. “That conversation was already started. Why not join the conversation?”
She said she also is not supportive of including policy to expunge marijuana convictions in the budget.
“I think we should have a greater conversation on that,” Kerkman said.
