How many should die?

The opioid crisis in Massachusetts is getting worse.opioidgraphic

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has reported that 997 people are confirmed or suspected dead from opioid overdoses already this year. This includes prescription medicines like Vicodin, Percocet, and Oxycontin.

At this rate, 2016 will be the deadliest year for opioid overdoses in our state’s history.

Marijuana is a safer alternative

If you think people in our state deserve a safer alternative to prescription painkillers, please help end marijuana prohibition on November 8 by donating today.

Voting “Yes on 4” will help address the opioid crisis by allowing adults 21 and older to use marijuana responsibly, without needing approval from a physician or the government.

Our state’s medical marijuana system is barely functional, fully 3.5 years after Massachusetts voters passed the medical marijuana initiative.

If our initiative passes, medical marijuana patients will be able to seek help for debilitating diseases and chronic pain without committing a crime.

This November, voting to tax and regulate marijuana for adult use will expand access for veterans and other patients who want to avoid dangerous prescriptions.

How many more people must die before we allow Massachusetts adults to use marijuana — a substance that’s safer than opioids, alcohol, and tobacco?
Please consider donating to our campaign, to give Bay Staters a safer alternative.
