Massachusetts: Lawmakers Amend Voter-Initiated Marijuana Legalization Measure

With little debate, House and Senate lawmakers voted today to significantly amend Massachusetts’ voter-initiated marijuana law. NORML Executive Director Erik Altieri called lawmakers’ decision a “slap in the face” to the nearly two million Massachusetts voters who decided in favor of Question 4 on Election Day.

[UPDATE: Gov. Baker signed the language into law on Friday, December 30.]
