After the embarrassment last week in which they had to retreat under a barrage of criticism, House leaders have now pushed their “revised” bill out of committee once again. We were present and made our objections known. We made clear that we prefer the Senate bill, which makes minor changes to the law.
The House and Senate are headed for a showdown. On Wednesday, the House will begin debating its bill; the Senate will follow shortly. We will be present both days and will be tracking all developments and all amendments.
On Wednesday at 10 a.m. in front of the State House, we will be joining MassCann/ NORML for a public rally. Our message will be simple: Defeat the House bill. Please join us and your fellow advocates to help deliver this crucial message!
The next two weeks will determine what legislation reaches the governor’s desk. We will be involved every step of the way.
