Massachusetts House and Senate Reach Compromise on Legalization Implementation Bill

Massachusetts House and Senate Reach Compromise on Legalization Implementation Bill
The House had previously voted for far-reaching changes to the law passed by voters in November 2016; compromise bill more closely reflects ballot initiative

BOSTON, Mass. - July 18, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) After weeks of talks and missed deadlines, legislators in Massachusetts have reached an agreement on legislation that will make changes to Question 4, the law to regulate marijuana for adults that was approved by voters in November 2016.
"After weeks of intense advocacy from Massachusetts voters, legislators have decided to respect the will of the people," said Matthew Schweich, director of state campaigns for the Marijuana Policy Project and one of the leaders of the 2016 campaign. "We are relieved that the legislature has dropped the House's 'repeal and replace' bill introduced last month, which would have made damaging changes to the law."
