Massachusetts: Lawmakers Fail To Act On Marijuana Legalization Measure

Posted by on November 17, 2016

Lawmakers failed to take action on legislation, H. 1561: The Cannabis Regulation and Taxation Act of 2016, to permit the personal possession, cultivation and retail sale of marijuana to adults. The measure would have also permitted home cultivation of the plant for non-commercial purposes.

A coalition of more than a dozen bipartisan Massachusetts lawmakers introduced the Act which would have regulated the commercial cultivation and retail sale of marijuana to adults over the age of 21. It also sought to permit home cultivation.

Massachusetts is one of a growing number of states where lawmakers are considering regulating cannabis for adults. NORML would like to thank those of you who contacted your state lawmakers in support of this legislation.
