YOUR TURN: Medical Marijuana - Good for Mass?

Voters will decide whether to grant doctors, patients and other care-givers the right to provide medical marijuana this fall. What do you think?

The states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington and Washington, D.C., all already allow medical marijuana to varying degrees - but is it right for Massachusetts?

That's the question state voters will decide this Fall, when they consider “A Law for the Humanitarian Medical Use of Marijuana,” the first of three questions on the ballot this year.

The initiative “seeks to legalize the use and cultivation of marijuana as a medical drug” and ends penalties on “qualifying patients, physicians and health care professionals, personal caregivers for patients, or medical marijuana treatment center agents for the medical use of marijuana."

What do you think? Could someone in your family use medical marijuana? Is this just a backdoor way of getting recreational marijuana legalized in the state? Take our poll and share your views with other readers in our comments.
