LEGAL POT OPPONENTS URGE CANNABIS COMMISSION TO "PROTECT THE PEOPLE"

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, OCT. 11, 2017.....One year ago, the battle over whether marijuana should be legal for adults to use was raging in Massachusetts. Now that it's settled, the combatants are still engaged in a skirmish over how the legal marijuana market should be structured and regulated in Massachusetts.

The Cannabis Control Commission is in the middle of a series of listening sessions around the state and organizations from both sides of the legalization debate are hoping to pack those sessions to sway the commission's regulations in their favor.

"We need the prevention community's voice heard at these meetings," the Massachusetts Prevention Alliance, which opposed medical marijuana and adult use legalization, wrote to supporters in an email Tuesday. "PLEASE arrange your schedules to attend the remaining four of seven sessions THIS WEEK."
