Cannabis reform activist demand end to delays in marijuana law

Advocates frustrated by slow roll-out of law

BOSTON (WWLP) – Massachusetts voters approved the legalization of marijuana for recreational use last November, but advocates of cannabis say that law is not being implemented quickly enough.

Members of the Massachusetts Cannabis Reform Coalition rallied outside the State House Wednesday to tell lawmakers to stop delaying the implementation of the law. They are also saying that the legislature should not raise the tax that buyers will have to pay in order to legally purchase pot.

22News reporter Elisha Machado was at the rally, and will have reaction from lawmakers tonight on 22News at 6:00.
