Boston archdiocese makes large contribution to fight against legal marijuana use
October 31, 2016
The Archdiocese of Boston has contributed $850,000 to a campaign to stop the legalization of recreational marijuana use in Massachusetts.
A referendum question on the November ballot in Massachusetts, Question 4, would allow for legal possession and use of limited quantities of marijuana. A spokesman for the archdiocese said that approval of the measure would have “a significant detrimental impact” on the work of the Church and the welfare of the community. The ballot question ranks “among the highest priorities” for the Church in Boston, the spokesman said.
