Phone Script

"Hello [Representative/Senator],

As your constituent, I would like to urge you to delay the flawed marijuana ballot law that is set to go in effect this Thursday, December 15th. This law has many defects and, in particular, inadequate protections from the illicit growing and distribution of home grown marijuana. It must be delayed.

We don’t want Massachusetts to make the same mistakes as Colorado where they’ve had to defend against lawsuits from other states, spend precious tax dollars on those lawsuits, and where 12 home growers were caught growing over 22 thousand pounds of marijuana contrary to the intent of the home grower provisions.

News reports have circulated of growing support for delaying and fixing this flawed law, but this must be done BEFORE it goes into effect. 

Please take action immediately to delay and fix this flawed law. Thank you."
