Updated: 12:30 p.m. on May 10

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Voters could get the chance to decide on recreational marijuana use in Milwaukee County. 

The county's Judiciary Committee approved a referendum Thursday morning. 

The question on the November 6th ballot would ask Milwaukee County voters if they favor or oppose allowing personal marijuana use, commercial regulation, and taxation of the plant. If the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors adopts the resolution, the county clerk will add the referendum question to all Milwaukee County ballots for the November election.

MILWAUKEE (CBS58) -- There will be a public hearing on a proposed marijuana referendum at the Milwaukee County Courthouse on Thursday at 9 a.m.

The question on the Nov. 6 ballot would be, "Do you favor allowing adults 21 years of age and older to engage in the personal use of marijuana, while also regulating commercial marijuana-related activities, and imposing a tax on the sale of marijuana?"
