ARGUMENT: Why implementation of medical marijuana law must be delayed

The argument: The 63% vote, on November 6, 2012, in favor of Question 3 has been called “the will of the people”. It is a reasonable working assumption, based on the way the question was worded, that the will of the people is for marijuana to be an option safely available to profoundly ill citizens with specifically defined severe conditions for whom conventional medicine is not effective. It is reasonable to assume also that it was the people’s assumption that public health and safety would NOT be adversely affected. Given the unforeseen, unintended consequences to public health and safety that has occurred in other states with similar laws and that our voters were promised by proponents of the ballot question that if passed, Massachusetts would be among the safest, most tightly regulated medical marijuana programs in the country – it makes no sense, to enact this law on January 1st with no regulations at all.
