Eight Massachusetts State Senators are on a fact-finding trip in Colorado to look into the legalization of marijuana ahead of a possible voter referendum.
Massachusetts voters in 2012 legalized medical marijuana. A question to legalize it for recreational use is expected to appear on the state election ballot this November.
Marijuana was legalized in Colorado two years ago.
State Senator James Welch of West Springfield is a member of the delegation visiting Colorado and he spoke Wednesday with WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill.
