Empower Wisconsin reports that the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors is looking to put another referendum on legalizing recreational marijuana on the ballot this fall, a strategy they have used in the past to help drive turnout, a strategy that many believe proved effective in helping get Tony Evers elected as governor. The ballot question, once again, means nothing without backing from the state, and leadership in the Republican-controlled state legislature has shown little interest in legalizing and regulating non-medical use of cannabis.
These nonbinding referenda are nothing other than a political ploy. They confuse voters because they sound official but are essentially meaningless. Liberals have been quick to put these types of referenda on a ballot and then hype them in social and other media, making people think when they vote on them, it will actually make a difference. Basically it’s a scam.
