Lawmakers in Wisconsin don't support the legalization of marijuana.

A few years ago, it seemed our neighbors to the north were going to be the next state to make cannabis legal.

According to,

"In 2009, it looked like Wisconsin was going to be a leader in passing progressive marijuana legislation."

What happened?

"The bill died in committee when Democratic Representative Julie Lassa voted with Republicans to tank it."

Since then, there hasn't been any progress with the laws. If things don't change, they could be surrounded by states where it is legal.

The issue has been put on ballots throughout the state with the majority of the citizens supporting both medical and recreational marijuana. Unfortunately, the results weren't for official use. They were just considered advisory.

Despite the support of the people, the legislators are not ready to agree.

Looks like Illinois will be winning this race.
