By Caroline Reinwald | WISN via CNNILLINOIS (WISN) — Wisconsin residents are choosing to spend their hard-earned cash in Illinois, specifically on weed. The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation estimates the state made $36.1 million in tax revenue last year from Wisconsinites traveling across state lines to buy marijuana. The same report said more than half the cannabis sales made in counties bordering Wisconsin were made by out-of-state residents. Tony Evers is proposing fully legalizing marijuana in his state budget proposal,but state Republicans say that won’t happen. Vos said he does not support legalizing recreational marijuana.
