Presented to the Massachusetts Legislative Joint Committee on Revenue


I thank the members of the Massachusetts Legislative Joint Committee on Revenue for holding this hearing regarding House Bill 2929/SB1801, which seeks to tax and regulate the retail production and distribution of marijuana for adults over 21 years of age.

I am here today representing NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, a public-interest lobby representing the interests of the tens of millions of responsible marijuana smokers in America.[1] Since 1965, over twenty million Americans have been arrested on marijuana charges. Nearly 90 percent of these total arrests were for simple possession for personal use.[2]
