The Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act; Question 4, Massachusetts - Medical Cannabis (marijuana) Proponents: The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Massachusetts, Website: Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol | Summary: The initiative allows adults 21 years of age and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana outside of their residences and up to 10 ounces of marijuana in an enclosed, locked space within their residences, which mimics the current in-residence allowance established by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health for medical marijuana patients. It allows adults 21 years of age and older to grow up to six marijuana plants in an enclosed, locked space within their residences and possess the marijuana produced by those plants in the location where it was grown. Likely voters back the measure by a margin of 55 percent to 40 percent, according to an October WBUR poll. >> Learn more >> * Click here to see >> more News >>

    Status of Medical Marijuana (Cannabis) in Massachusetts.

      Info on Massachusetts and Medical Cannabis 

    Massachusetts has a MEDICAL MARIJUANA (cannabis) LAW.

    SUMMARY: Ballot Question 3 -- Approved Nov. 6, 2012 by 63% of voters Effective: Jan. 1, 2013 | It eliminates statewide criminal and civil penalties related to the possession and use of up to a 60-day supply of cannabis by qualified patients who possess a "valid registration card" issued by the state. "The citizens of Massachusetts intend that there should be no punishment under state law for qualifying patients, physicians and health care professionals, personal caregivers for patients, or medical marijuana treatment center agents for the medical use of marijuana...

    ("Within 120 days of the effective date of this law, the department shall issue regulations defining the quantity of marijuana that could reasonably be presumed to be a sixty-day supply for qualifying patients.") Patients must possess a recommendation from a physician attesting that cannabis assists with the treatment of a "debilitating medical condition." Physicians may authorize cannabis for the treatment of "cancer, glaucoma, positive status for human immunodeficiency virus, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Crohn's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis and other conditions as determined in writing by a qualifying patient's physician."

    In the first year after the effective date, the Department shall issue registrations for up to thirty-five non-profit medical marijuana treatment centers, provided that at least one treatment center shall be located in each county, and not more than five shall be located in any one county." Individual patients will also be permitted to privately cultivate limited amounts of cannabis or designate a "personal caregiver" to cultivate for them if they are unable to access a state-authorized dispensary or if they can verify "financial hardship."

    Full text of the measure is available here. Additional information about the law is available from the Massachusetts Patient Advocacy Alliance - www.masspatients.org/site/

    Approved Conditions:   Approved diagnosis; "Cancer, glaucoma, positive status for human immunodeficiency virus, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Crohn's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis and other conditions as determined in writing by a qualifying patient’s physician."

    Possession/Cultivation:   Patients may possess "no more marijuana than is necessary for the patient's personal, medical use, not exceeding the amount necessary for a sixty-day supply... Within 120 days of the effective date of this law, the department shall issue regulations defining the quantity of marijuana that could reasonably be presumed to be a sixty-day supply for qualifying patients, based on the best available evidence."

    "The Department shall issue a cultivation registration to a qualifying patient whose access to a medical treatment center is limited by verified financial hardship, a physical incapacity to access reasonable transportation, or the lack of a treatment center within a reasonable distance of the patient’s residence. The Department may deny a registration based on the provision of false information by the applicant. Such registration shall allow the patient or the patient’s personal caregiver to cultivate a limited number of plants, sufficient to maintain a 60-day supply of marijuana, and shall require cultivation and storage only in an enclosed, locked facility. The department shall issue regulations consistent with this section within 120 days of the effective date of this law. Until the department issues such final regulations, the written recommendation of a qualifying patient's physician shall constitute a limited cultivation registration."

    PATIENT POSSESSION LIMITS:   No more than 10 ounces every two months

    HOME CULTIVATION: Yes, limited amounts

    AMENDMENT(s):   TBA

    CAREGIVERS:   Yes, individual patients will be permitted to designate a "personal caregiver" at least 21 years old to cultivate for them if they are unable to access a state-authorized dispensary or if they can verify "financial hardship."

    Massachusetts - The Laws concerning marijuana (NEWS) Meanwhile in Boston, Massachusetts in the United States of America, State police have today announced they will no longer ticket people caught in possession of cannabis, and regardless of whether they are actually caught smoking cannabis or not. Mark R. Laverdure, chief of police in Clinton, a Central Massachusetts town of about 8,000 residents, told the Boston Globe; "You'll probably have a lot of Police officers that, unless there's a caller complaining about it, won't even bother with it."

    "They probably handled a lot of it informally before" he continued, "and probably more so now." In November 2008 a new law was passed in the state of Massachusetts, which states that possession of an ounce or less of cannabis would see the subject receive only a $100 fixed penalty (around £50), with no criminal proceedings.

    Public Ballot = Democracy. The law was passed via a public ballot, which came back showing a massive 65% public approval rate, for the decriminalisation of cannabis for personal use and just to clarify a point this initiative has nothing at all to do with medical cannabis. This is an official decriminalisation of personal, recreational use. Click > here < for more.

    Massachusetts - News, cannabisnews.org (ORG, News) | Massachusetts — Relieved weed smokers brazenly lit up on Hub streets without fear of arrest for the first time as cops statewide sought to sort out how to handle Massachusetts’ weakened pot laws.

    “It’s super-relaxing,” said one 31-year-old professional as he fired up a joint in an East Boston park yesterday. “It’s just a lot more easy. I’m super happy this happened. It’s kind of like, ‘What’s the big deal?’ ”

    Under the new state law that went into effect Thursday, possession of less than an ounce of marijuana became a civil infraction, rather than a criminal offense, punishable only by a $100 fine rather than arrest.

    “This is just a common sense adjustment to the law,” said Bruce Mirken, spokesman for the Washington, D.C.-based Marijuana Policy Project. “It’s not a day for parades. It’s a small step toward sanity.”

    Police across the state, meanwhile, scrambled to figure out how to enforce the new rules. Click > here < for more.

    Places that have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States Places that have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Multiple places have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States; however, cannabis is illegal under federal law. Gonzales v. Raich (2005) held in a 6-3 decision that the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution allowed the federal government to ban the use of cannabis, including medical use even if local laws allow it. Most places that have decriminalized cannabis have civil fines, drug education, or drug treatment in place of incarceration and/or criminal charges for possession of small amounts of cannabis, or have made various cannabis offenses the lowest priority for law enforcement.

Massachusetts was one of three states that let convicted felons act as the citizens that they are and vote.

    Massachusetts, News - Massachusetts voters will decide marijuana regulation question in November Massachusetts voters will decide marijuana regulation question in November - Last update: August 17, 2016 | Massachusetts voters will have an opportunity to vote on ending marijuana prohibition this November. If voters approve Question 4, the Bay State will become one of the first states on the east coast to legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana for adult use. Click here to learn more about the Yes on 4 campaign and to get involved. Unfortunately, the campaign has strong opposition. Gov. Charlie Baker, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, and House Speaker Robert DeLeo formed an opposition committee in April. The next financial reporting date for initiative campaigns is early September, so there’s no way to get a read on the opposition’s fundraising until then. History shows that Bay State voters don’t always follow the lead of top officials on ballot questions, however. >>   Visit - http://www.mpp.org/states/massachusetts/ <<

    A Western New England University poll in April showed 57 percent support for legalization, with 35 percent opposed and 7 percent undecided. Other polls have shown the race to be closer. The campaign is reaching out to local and state elected officials, business groups, physicians, clergy, treatment professionals, and many other groups to help broaden the base of support.

    Only six dispensaries open, highlighting slow approval process | On November 6, 2012, 63% of Bay State voters approved Question 3, making their state the 18th to enact a compassionate medical marijuana program. More than two years later — long after deadlines had passed — the Department of Public Health allowed the first dispensary to begin cultivating on December 31, 2014. The first dispensary opened in Salem on June 24, 2015, and six dispensaries have opened since then. Question 3 called for up to 35 dispensaries (more if deemed necessary by regulators), but only 15 dispensary applicants were selected by the department in 2014. In June 2015, the department announced that it would scrap its controversial scoring system for applicants and that it would instead begin considering applications on a rolling basis. Over 150 dispensary applicants are currently involved in the process of seeking state approval.

    Meanwhile, patients have been able to apply for ID cards since October 2014. The registration is mandatory: Unregistered patients are no longer afforded any protection from being arrested. If you are a patient, click here to visit the Department of Public Health’s website, where you may begin the application process.

    Marijuana laws in Massachusetts | Although possession of under an ounce of marijuana is punishable by a civil fine of $100 in Massachusetts, pursuant to an initiative campaign led by MPP in 2008, the prohibition of marijuana has plenty of opportunity costs. Time spent enforcing marijuana laws could better be used to investigate and bring to justice perpetrators of serious and violent crime. According to data from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report, in 2012, the clearance rate for murder in Massachusetts was 47.9%; for rape and burglary, the clearance rates were 24.9% and 10.2%, respectively. Additionally, new evidence suggests that Massachusetts’ marijuana laws are not being evenly enforced.

    Massachusetts - News, Pot Shots: The Faces of Marijuana in Boston Pot Shots: The Faces of Marijuana in Boston - By Chris Wright (September 13, 2001 - Source: Boston Phoenix) | (NEWS) In 1937, Harry J. Anslinger, the commissioner of narcotics, stood before the United States Congress to speak of a new scourge that was sweeping the country: marijuana. He presented many tales to illustrate just how dangerous the drug was. " A teenage boy and a girl lost their senses so completely after smoking marihuana, " he intoned, " that they eloped and were married. "

    And yet, Anslinger continued, conjugal indiscretion was the least of the country’s problems in the face of the green menace. Although few are concerned about gangs of murderous potheads roaming the streets anymore, marijuana is still viewed by many Americans as a public menace — and its users are still condemned as renegades, reprobates, and criminals. The year Anslinger provided his colorful testimony, there were 338 arrests for marijuana violations in the US. Today, the annual arrest rate stands at about 700,000.

    Massachusetts - The Laws concerning marijuana Netherlands makes cannabis a prescription drug By Paul Gallagher, Reuters, 8/31/2003 (NEWS) | AMSTERDAM, Aug 31 -- The Netherlands will this week become the world's first country to make cannabis available as a prescription drug in pharmacies to treat chronically ill patients, a top Dutch health official said on Sunday. The Dutch government has given the country's 1,650 pharmacies the green light to sell cannabis to sufferers of cancer, HIV, multiple sclerosis (MS) and Tourette's Syndrome in a ground-breaking acceptance of the drug's medicinal use.

    "It's a historic step. What is unique is that we are making it available on a prescription only basis through pharmacies," said Willem Scholten, head of the Office of Medicinal Cannabis at the Dutch Health Ministry. The Netherlands, where prostitution and the sale of cannabis in coffee shops are regulated by the government, has a history of pioneering social reforms. It was also the first country to legalise euthanasia. Visit - http://www.boston.com/news/daily/31/netherlands_can.htm.

      some HISTORY  

    Medical Cannabis, History - Letter: Medical Marijuana Informational Guide on Medical Cannabis | If you have ever heard of the song, “Lets Go Get Stoned,” as sung by Ray Charles or Joe Cocker, you know the lyrics were referring to getting high or using cannabis aka marijuana. This mind altering drug goes by other names as well; names such as weed, pot, joint, blunt, hash and mary jane are quite common among users. Cannabis is a plant that contains a chemical called cannabinoids or cannabinolidic acids. Another substance that is found in cannabis is THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which gives the users that “high” sensation. When speaking of marijuana, the actual substance used in creating the high feeling comes from the leaves and flowering tops of the cannabis plant. Marijuana is considered to be a schedule 1 controlled substance today, because of the THC, which can be highly potent, depending upon the concentration factor of the THC.

    Medical Cannabis - Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine by Ian Williams Goddard | In reaction to medical cannabis access referendums on the ballots in Arizona and California, former presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George Bush signed a letter stating that they "categorically oppose'' access to cannabis for its many proven therapeutic uses such as the prevention of blindness and epileptic seizures. Their chief concern was that legal medical access would send the message that cannabis is safe. The presidents can, however, lay their safety concerns to rest because the scientific literature overwhelmingly confirms that cannabis is both an effective and safe medicine. The Cannabis Safety Profile. The journal PHARMACOLOGICAL REVIEWS reports that decades of research prove that, "Compared with legal drugs...marijuana does not pose greater risks." Yet based upon mortality statistics, we can safely conclude that cannabis is one of the safest medical drugs known, for, while prescription drugs, defined as safe by the FDA, kill up to 27,000 and aspirin up to 1,000 Americans per year, cannabis kills 0 per year.
