Senators to go to Colorado to explore legal marijuana state
BOSTON — When it comes to understanding marijuana policy and its potential implications for Massachusetts, some senators are willing to go a mile high for their work.
The Special Senate Committee on Marijuana, led by Winchester Democrat Sen. Jason Lewis, plans to travel to Colorado in January when they will spend a week exploring how that state regulates and controls the legal recreational use of marijuana.
Four states and the District of Columbia have legalized the recreational use of marijuana. Proponents behind a ballot question to legalize pot in Massachusetts appeared Wednesday to clear the first major signature hurdle to put the question before voters in 2016.
Senate President Stanley Rosenberg said during an interview on Boston Public Radio on Wednesday that Lewis’ committee, which now has 10 members, would be taking a “field trip to Colorado” to study the public policy impacts of legalizing the recreational use of the drug.
For months, the task force had been a committee of one, but Rosenberg said that once it became clear petitioners were likely to be successful in gathering enough signatures to put the question on the ballot next November more senators stepped up to participate and help with research.
