What You Need To Know | Wisconsin Marijuana Laws
Numerous states have been changing their rules on marijuana use and possession in recent years. Medical marijuana is becoming a legal entity in some states, while other states work to decriminalize recreational marijuana.

Legal Marijuana Use In Wisconsin
Wisconsin passed a medical marijuana bill in 2014 that allows some uses of cannabis, but there are stringent limitations. Only cannabidiol that does not have a psychoactive effect can be used, and it is only licensed for people with seizure disorders.
Marijuana-Related Activities That Are Still Illegal
All other marijuana uses and activities are still illegal in Wisconsin. These can include:
- Possession of marijuana, which can result in up to six months in jail or $1,000 in fines
- Selling marijuana, a felony offense
- Selling to a minor
- Marijuana sale within 1,000 feet of a school, which can result in one year in jail
