Massachusetts Group For Recreational Marijuana Legalization Submits Required Signatures Before Deadline

Marijuana in Mass

Boston, Massachusetts – The group, Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, has now officially turned in more than 25,000 registered voter signatures, that is more than double the required amount of voter signatures for their proposal to make the November ballot. With the deadline later this week and 10,792 certified signatures required, the group is confident that the submitted voter signatures will be appropriate for their proposal to make the ballot this November.

The proposal, if approved, would legalize the use of recreational marijuana making it the fifth state in the U.S. to do so. Like other states, the proposal would allow people 21 and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana for personal use. A 3.75 % Excise tax would be issued to all retail sales of marijuana, as well as a 6.25% statewide sales tax.

This is the second time the group has gone through the signature gathering process. Last year, organizers collected more than 60,000 signatures to put their initiative petitions in front of the legislature. The initiatives were declined when lawmakers refused to act on them.

Under federal law marijuana remains illegal yet Massachusetts is still one of the many states pushing to legalize recreational marijuana this November.
