Three years ago, Massachusetts voters approved the medical use of marijuana via a binding ballot referendum. Now with two states having made recreational pot legal and others leaning that way, should voters here decide that too? Last week, Senate President Stanley Rosenberg said he has floated the idea of a non-binding ballot question for 2016. If the ballot referendum is “not a well-crafted law, then what are you going to do? Is the Legislature going to intervene or not?” he said, according to State House News Service. “Most of the time, we do not intervene with a poorly crafted ballot initiative." So, should a ballot question on legalizing marijuana be binding? Or not binding, in effect handing the ball to the legislature and governor? Please vote and comment.
Should a 2016 ballot referendum calling for the legalization of marijuana be binding or not binding?
