Legal recreational marijuana will be part of the two-year state budget Governor Tony Evers proposes next week. The drug would be regulated and taxed in much the same way the state does with alcohol. Wisconsin would join 15 other states that have already legalized recreational marijuana, including Michigan and Illinois. According to the governor, this would generate about 165-million dollars annually. Evers made a similar proposal in his previous budget, but it was rejected by Republicans in the state legislature.
