Marijuana In Massachusetts, What Happens Now That It’s Legal?

Mass­a­chu­setts voters on Nov. 8 over­whelm­ingly approved the legal­iza­tion of recre­ational mar­i­juana. The new law will take effect Dec. 15, but there are still some ques­tions con­cerning reg­u­la­tion, pos­ses­sion, and distribution.

We asked asso­ciate pro­fessor Leo Beletsky, a drug policy expert who holds joint appoint­ments in the School of Law and Bouvé Col­lege of Health Sci­ences, for his insight into what we can expect in the coming months and how President-elect Donald Trump’s admin­is­tra­tion could impact the imple­men­ta­tion of the new law.


What are the next steps to bringing legal­ized mar­i­juana to fruition on Dec. 15? And what can we expect in the months to follow?
