  • Democrats unveil bill to decriminalize ‘small amounts of marijuana,’ 28 grams or less

    MADISON — Wisconsin Democrats have once again unveiled legislation to decriminalize marijuana. The bill has little chance of passing the Republican-controlled Legislature. But the bill’s authors say it is worth fighting for. For the second time in less than a year, Wisconsin Democrats are pushing to decriminalize what they call “small amounts of marijuana.” “With limited law enforcement resources, it just makes sense to focus on serious crimes that will make our communities safer,” said State Rep.
