What is AB 482?
AB 482 aims to legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana for adult use in Wisconsin. The bill also outlines a program for patients seeking to alleviate symptoms or effects of debilitating medical conditions. Assembly Bill (AB) 482 was introduced on August 24, 2017, by Wisconsin State Representative Melissa Sargent and 14 of her colleagues, and co-sponsored by three (3) state senators.
Wisconsin would find its place in history by becoming the first state to legalize both recreational use and medical use simultaneously. AB 482 would legalize marijuana under a tax-and-regulate system similar to alcohol. This would be another first for Wisconsin. The other 29 states and the District of Columbia with legal cannabis programs accomplished legalization through favorable support at the ballot box.
