Great Midwest Marijuana Harvest Festival returns to Madison

MADISON, Wis. — America’s longest-running cannabis rights festival returned to Madison on Sunday.

Marijuana is illegal in Wisconsin, but that didn’t stop activists from celebrating it during the annual Great Midwest Marijuana Harvest Festival. Attendees listened to speakers and enjoyed live music.

“I agree that it should be your right to do it whether or not you want to,” Lance Green said. ” It’s not a big harmful thing like a whole lot of other drugs are, and where it’s been legalized – it’s been just fine.”

Governor Evers has previously said that he would like to see marijuana legalization wind up on the ballot in the Badger State.
