2024 Election Coverage

AD 11 Primary: Taylor (D) vs Heredia (D)

The Incumbent in Assembly District 11 Dora Drake will be running for Senator. That leaves the district wide open and with no Republican in sight for this race, the primary takes the cake and the job of State Assembly Representative.

Democrat Primary

Maybe don’t bank on Banks yet. Rick Banks (D) may not have made the final cut for ballot access, but we thank him and will include him as a legalizer in the stats I run during the campaign. In my 2022 Assembly Candidate Analysis 94% of Democrat Candidates supported legalization of recreational marijuana. This was a dramatic improvement from the 2020 Assembly Candidate Analysis when 72% of Democrat candidates supported recreational marijuana.

Banks said he was 100% in favor of full legalization for adult use of cannabis.

Rick Banks ran in 2018 AD 16 Primary and got 15% of the vote.

Amillia Heredia (D)

Heredia had this to say when I asked about her stance on marijuana reform:

It isn’t one of my campaign topics, but I’d love to meet and hear more about your thoughts and concerns.

If you are a resident of the district, start your cannabis conversation with this candidate right now.

Sequanna Taylor (D)

Dr. Sequanna Taylor is a Milwaukee County Supervisor and was a co-sponsor of local decriminalization in Milwaukee County to make marijuana a $1 fine. Her 2018 newsletter also highlighted additional cannabis reform measures she was involved in.

We highly expect her to continue to support marijuana reform if elected to the State Assembly this Fall.

Please follow her campaign facebook page at Sequanna Taylor 4 Wisconsin.

I will provide you additional 2024 Wisconsin State Election coverage throughout the campaign season. This next election is extremely important for marijuana reform and I will continue to bring you information as more candidates make their political moves.

In the event that we end up with divided government in the 2024-25 legislation session, the official formation of The Wisconsin Cannabis Caucus would be a must first step towards reform. The official establishment of this Caucus will represent the growing, bipartisan support in Wisconsin.

Although session as ended we still urge you to contact your elected officials. The top four action alerts are still functionable on The Wisconsin Cannabis Activist Action Network for you immediate use.
