By Christopher Ingraham for The Washington Post. Massachusetts’ top politicians just came out swinging against legal marijuana.
Voters there are on track to decide whether to legalize marijuana at the ballot box this November. But the state’s Republican governor and Democratic attorney general have penned an op-ed with Boston’s mayor encouraging residents to Just Say No.
Noting that the state has already decriminalized the possession of small quantities of marijuana and is in the process of setting up a medical marijuana regime, the politicians say that “the question before us now is whether marijuana should be fully legal and widely available for commercial sale. We think the answer is ‘no.'”
