Support the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol
Make a contribution to help regulate marijuana in Massachusetts.
It will create safer communities.
Regulating marijuana will replace a dangerous underground market with a system of licensed businesses that ask for ID and only sell marijuana to adults. Products will be tested, packaged, and labeled to ensure marijuana is not contaminated and consumers know what they're getting. Law enforcement officials will be able to spend more of their time and limited resources addressing serious crimes.
It just makes sense.
Marijuana is objectively less harmful than alcohol to the consumer and to society - it is less addictive, less damaging to the body, and less likely to contribute to violent and reckless behavior. Adults who can legally consume alcohol should not be punished simply for using a less harmful substance.
It will bolster local economy.
Taxing marijuana sales will raise millions of dollars in new revenue each year. Legitimate marijuana businesses will create thousands of good jobs for Massachusetts residents and utilize the products and services of other Massachusetts businesses.
The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol is supporting the 2016 statewide ballot initiative to end marijuana prohibition in Massachusetts and replace it with a system in which marijuana is regulated and taxed similarly to alcohol. The initiative is going to appear on the 2016 ballot, but we need your support to get the word out and make sure it passes!
