Another review from the Associated Industries of Massachusetts (AIM) found that 62 percent of organizations in the state are against legalizing marijuana. Massachusetts’ voters will settle on whether to legalize individual cannabis use in November through a vote. The state’s biggest business gathering is campaigning hard against the attempt. This month, CEO of AIM Richard C. Lord composed a letter to officials contradicting a comparative push to legalize the individual use of cannabis through the lawmaking body.

“[Legalization would] create considerable uncertainty for employers relative to their legal rights and obligations, particularly as relates to workplace drug policies,” Lord wrote. “With legalized marijuana use, we create the risk of employees coming to work with drugs still in their system… How will an employer respond to a worker operating heavy equipment on a job site under the influence of marijuana?”

Organizations in the state appear to be under the feeling that legalizing marijuana will transform their representatives into untrustworthy potheads. However, because a substance is legal doesn’t mean representatives will race to toke up before work. A lot of cannabis purchasers wake and prepare before making their way for the workplace—regardless of whether weed is legal doesn’t change that. What might change is that cash spent on pot will move towards the legal business sector, making a radical new industry that would raise the state’s economy.

New research from ArcView and New Frontier estimated that the cannabis business in Massachusetts could be worth $1.1 billion by 2020 if voters choose legalization this fall. That projection is for organizations that offer weed and cannabis items; it does exclude auxiliary organizations or different commercial ventures that would profit by legalization. The way that voters appear to be prone to support the vote activity in November puts Massachusetts at the bleeding edge of legalization in the Upper East.
