The Assembly District 19 is a solid Democrat District in Milwaukee and draws no Republican to the final race, making it an uncontested Democrat win in November 2024. The Incumbent will face a primary challenger come August.

Ryan Clancy (D-Milwaukee)

Incumbent Ryan Clancy has marijuana legalization as a priority on his campaign website and you can follow him on his campaign facebook page Clancy for Assembly.

Cannabis should be legalized, decriminalized and – importantly – people who have been convicted of possession or dealing charges should have their records expunged completely. The unequal enforcement of drug charges generally are a matter of equity, and we must correct this as soon as the law is changed. I support and co-sponsored Rep. Madison’s bill to decriminalize cannabis.

During my time at Milwaukee County, I authored a ballot referendum which asked voters about their views on legalization. Unsurprisingly, a clear majority – 74% – were in support. The Republicans in power at the state continued not to even give Rep. Madison’s bill a hearing, and also moved to ban future advisory referendums, as it’s clearly awkward to be that out of step with public opinion.

VS

Jarrod Anderson (D-Milwaukee)

Campaign Facebook Page: Jarrod Anderson for Assembly. Jarrod has marijuana legalization as a campaign plank and is listed as an issue on his website. From the campaign website of Jarrod for Assembly:

I also join 86% of Wisconsin residents in support or legislation that would legalize marijuana and subject its sale to regulation and taxation. Revenue from the sale of marijuana should be devoted to recovery and rehabilitation programs in the state.

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.
