Position on Marijuana Legalization

In August, Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse became the first mayor in Massachusetts to support the legalization of recreational marijuana. Now, he says that he wants to make Holyoke a "hub" for recreational marijuana. The marijuana industry, he says, promises jobs, opportunities to increase revenue, and tourism in Holyoke. 01/2017

Comments

"Given the legalization and the passage of Question 4 and before that of course, medical marijuana we need space in the Commonwealth, obviously to cultivate marijuana no matter where it's eventually dispensed throughout the state. 01/2017

"Holyoke is well positioned in Western Massachusetts at the intersection of 90 and 91. We have cheap green renewable energy and an abundance of vacant mill space. Today alone, we have 1.5 million square feet of vacant mill space in downtown Holyoke and I as mayor obviously have been very open-minded to the marijuana industry, particularly given its passage, to now take advantage of these economic development, workforce development opportunities as a means to create jobs and expand tax base in our community. And enhance revenue of course." 01/2017
