If Amherst's medical market is $10 million what will the recreation market be?
The November 8th ballot will spark a historic turnout in our little college town as it becomes a perfect storm for generating interest: A Presidential contest, a marijuana legalization question and a local pocket book issue with a $30+ million Debt Exclusion Override for a new Amherst elementary Mega School.
Today the State Judicial Supreme Court unanimously (7-0) approved placing the legalization of recreational marijuana on the November 8th ballot, but did slap the Attorney General for her original wording of the question.
The new wording for the title of the question is:
"Legalization, Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana."
And the summary is as follows:
"A yes vote would allow persons 21 or older to possess, use and transfer marijuana and products containing marijuana concentrate (including edible products) and to cultivate marijuana, all in limited amounts, and would provide for the regulation and taxation of commercial sale of marijuana and marijuana products."
