  1. I now live in a state where recreational pot is legal and has been for over a year. We’ve had no problems whatsoever with it and tax returns are higher than anticipated Grow up Massachusetts !

  2. I agree with Jack when he says to vote NO on question 4.

    Legalizing pot will only lead to more problems. Never mind that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is absolutely salivating when it considers the anticipated tax collection as a result of legalization. I believe they will be sadly disappointed AND the problems associated with legalized POT will be greater than anticipated….. AND illegal distribution will only continue.

    No one will then be able to put the genie back into the bottle once it is loose.

  3. Question 4 on the ballot to legalize pot allows for a person to grow up to six marijuana plants in their home. Anyone who believes that legalizing pot will eliminate the sale of it in the open market just doesn’t understand how commodities work relating to supply and demand.

    EVERY day Haverhill police are arresting people on distribution of pot charges. If it becomes legal the open market will be significantly bigger than it is now because there will be a much greater supply of sellers and product coming into it. That greater supply provided by unregulated sellers means that there will ALWAYS be an open market to sell the product into. It will not be legal for home growers to sell their product but it goes without saying that is going to happen anyway. Open market sellers will have a legal means to obtain product and can always undercut the pricing of regulated retail sales outlets. For that reason, people who don’t even use pot will be getting into the distribution of it based on a profit motive. Police resources will be stretched even further by pursuing the significant increase in home grown pot sellers flooding into the market.

    Vote NO on Question 4 !
