A Matter of Measures
Marijuana leads this quarterly summary of legislative developments. Voters in Massachusetts and Maine approved initiative petitions legalizing the recreational use of the drug, joining Washington, D.C., and five other states (California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Colorado) that have already done so. Since the beginning of the year, lawmakers in a dozen more states, including Rhode Island, have begun considering measures that would either permit marijuana use outright or decriminalize its possession. Twenty-eight states have already authorized its medical use.
