State House rally planned to protest delay on marijuana stores


He said, "If you don't do it right, you make a mess of it and you spend a lot of time and a lot of money going back trying to fix it, and the deadlines in that law as passed by the voters are really too tight to do it properly".

Several lawmakers have expressed concern that the 3.75 percent state excise tax now in the law would be too low to cover regulatory and enforcement costs.

The Massachusetts Legislature approved a six-month delay of several key provisions in the state's new recreational marijuana law, including the licensing of pot shops, angering backers of the voter-approved measure. "I shouldn't be surprised but it sure breeds anger and cynicism of government".

The measure was only voted on by about a half-dozen state legislators and has already been sent to anti-legalization Gov. Charlie Baker, who called the delay "perfectly appropriate". "The initiative system exists to give the people a say when the legislature won't act, and now six or seven legislators - without even the full backing of their fellow members - suddenly act unilaterally after badly losing at the ballot box?" The measure will not have any impact on portions of the law permitting possession and home-growing which have already taken effect.

"The Legislature has a responsibility to implement the will of the voters while also protecting public health and public safety", Senate President Stan Rosenberg said.

Aiken state representative jailed on domestic violence charge
Meantime, South Carolina House Speaker Jay Lucas says he has heard about the arrest and will take action if Corley is indicted. State representative Christopher Corley, R-Aiken, was arrested on charges of domestic violence and pointing a weapon Tuesday.

The 12-page ballot question was approved by voters in November.

"The voters have made the decision; this is clearly not a positive first sign that the Legislature will act in good conscience from what the voters wanted", he said.

"We are in fear that people are going to get arrested in the next six months because there will be a time frame when it's legal to possess it but you can not buy it", Donlan said.

Both Rosenberg and DeLeo have also highlighted the combined 10 percent sales and excise tax rate on marijuana in the law as an area of future focus.

Isaac Dietrich, CEO of MassRoots, a Colorado-based company that connects marijuana consumers "with products they'll love", said in a statement, "It's a shame a small group of legislators are working to undermine the will of millions of voters in MA". The move pushes the timeline back for marijuana shops to open from the anticipated January 1, 2018 to July 2018 - and likely even longer for the Berkshires.
