Massachusetts Police Chiefs Oppose Medical Marijuana

The state’s association of police chiefs today said they oppose a state ballot question to legalize medical marijuana.

Wayne Sampson, executive director of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association this afternoon said the association met today and agreed they do not support Question 3.

“We’re very concerned that it is so loosely written, relative to who can obtain it and for what reasons,” he said.

Sampson said law enforcement officials’ biggest concern is that pot is a gateway drug to other drugs.

He also pointed out that marijuana is still illegal under federal law.

He said police also believe there is not enough scientific evidence proving the drug is an effective medication.
