Has someone told you marijuana is now legal in Wisconsin? If so, unless you're already armed with the facts, this type of misguided statement could land you in a lot to trouble with the law. Currently, seven states, plus the District of Columbia, have passed laws regarding recreationally smoking marijuana. Wisconsin is not one of these states. Also, at the federal level, all possession, manufacturing, selling, delivering and use of marijuana remains illegal, which can lead to confusion in individual states where laws conflict.
Drunk driving is a serious crime, and like most states, Wisconsin laws bring steep penalties for individuals who choose to drink and drive. You may know that if convicted, a DUI or OWI can result in loss of driving privileges, time behind bars and more. However, that is not all you need to know about this type of criminal offense and its associated penalties.
