The Archdiocese of Boston Gives $850,000 to Fight Legal Marijuana in Massachusetts

News

Adult-use cannabis just got another high-profile opponent. The Boston Archdiocese of the Catholic Church will be giving $850,000 to the Campaign for a Safe and Healthy Massachusetts, which is dedicated to defeating Question 4, a statewide ballot measure to legalize recreational marijuana.

 

According to the Boston Globe, the archdiocese “holds the matter among its highest priorities” and cited “detrimental impacts on our parishes, our ministries.”

 

The donation could breathe life into an anti-cannabis campaign that has struggled to raise money; the Globe reported that the church’s money “represents about a 50% increase” over what the group has raised thus far. But even with an extra $850,000, marijuana opponents are still well behind what rec supporters have raised.

 

The latest polling shows Question 4 is still vulnerable, with just 49% of voters supporting legalization, 42% opposed and 9% undecided.
