March for Cannabis aims to legalize marijuana in Wisconsin

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) --  Marijuana supporters gathered Saturday afternoon in downtown Milwaukee to push to legalize pot in Wisconsin.

The group marched from MacArthur Square to the Milwaukee County Courthouse for the 8th annual March for Cannabis.

"We're trying to raise awareness of the cannabis plant. We're also making the people know there is an election this year and there are candidates running that are pro cannabis and we intend to support these candidates," said Jeff Hochstein, who helped organize the event.

The group NORML, or National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, cited a Marquette University Law School poll that says 59 percent of Wisconsin voters agreed marijuana should be fully legalized and regulated like alcohol.
