Massachusetts Marijuana Legalized

On November 8, 2016, voters in Massachusetts, by 53.57%, voted yes to question 4, the Massachusetts Marijuana Legalization Initiative.

The initiative provides a framework of how marijuana may be consumed and used in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Starting December 15, 2016, residents of Massachusetts may grow marijuana. Residents will be allowed six plants per person. And, 12 plants max per household.

On the street, people are allowed up to 1 ounce of marijuana on the person. But, are allowed up to 10 ounces of marijuana inside their home. Inside the house, you may only have 1 ounce of marijuana that is not locked. In other words, if you were to have 10 ounces of marijuana in the house, nine of the ounces must be locked up, and only one ounce may be allowed to be out in the open.

People may consume marijuana in or on private property as long as that private property is not unknown tobacco smoking place. In other words you may consume anywhere you are allowed to consume tobacco, as long as the consumption is also on private property. For those found in violation of smoking in public there will be a fine and forfeiture of your marijuana.

There are also limits to transportation of marijuana.  Most importantly, there can be no interstate travel with marijuana.  in other words, people may not purchase marijuana in Colorado and bring it into Massachusetts,  and vice versa.  During automobile transport, all marijuana must be stored out of the passenger compartment,  and preferably in a closed, locked position.

The limits of transportation, however, change, if acting as an agent of a licensed Marijuana Entity.

The Law Offices of Marvin Cable has been at the forefront of the law since inception. Marvin Cable is on the legal committee for National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML).
