MADISON, Wis. -Three Democrats vying for the party's nomination for attorney general are grappling with questions about legalizing marijuana.

Law students asked state Rep. Jon Richards during a debate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Tuesday whether he would advocate for legalizing marijuana. Richards said Wisconsin should watch what happens in Colorado and Washington, two states that have legalized the drug but it's too early to follow suit.

Jefferson County District Attorney Susan Happ and Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne didn't get an opportunity to answer the question. Happ told reporters later that legalizing medicinal marijuana could be a logical step but she wouldn't advocate for such a move. Ozanne said it's up to the Legislature.

Richards, Happ and Ozanne will square off in a primary Aug. 12.
