going in-depth and taking a closer look at what some say is the risk in this case that may not be worth the reward. we're joined by the state senator with safe and health kbhi massachusetts thank you so much for having us. >> thank you for having us on. >> tell us what your side is saying about this marijuana ballot question. >> well, this is a very big issue. what we're saying this isn't about just somebody smoking a joint. what this is about this is a marijuana industry. >> what does that mean? >> what that means is 50% of the product is out there with regards to marijuana is going to be edible, cookies, candies, gummy bears, lip balm and butter that's what they're saying. we're talking about drugged driving. people will be driving down the road high on marijuana and are going to cause accidents and we have no test, no test whatsoever to be able to test if they have marijuana in their system. >> well, let me ask you the
>> but the problem is we can't test it we have to take a blood test and then make the case. here's the challenge you can say well, there was a marijuana in your system. -- there is no way to test for that. you want to open something up like they say except we don't have a test to protect for that. and that's a real in washington state aaa just did a study they have doubled the amount of fatal accidents from 8% to 17% just in the year since it has been legalized. >> now i want to ask you about edibles. that has been one of the key points of this side's argument. another side is saying there are just some people who prefer to have marijuana that way and that the commission that will be regulating this will just go ahead and set limits on how it can be packaged and sold. >> the reality is when you
clearly they do the gummy bears and the cookies and the brownies, those are very tempting to kids. so it's not an adult thing they say 21-year-olds it's not really an adult thing it's very tempting to young kids. it's the way to get them in as consumers in the future. that's really what we don't want to do. this is a commercial industry all about making money for the long term. >> and so so when you talk about that commercialization what are you envision happening here in massachusetts, should this ha watch the red sox game. you are going to marijuana ads selling marijuana, selling their wears just like do you budweiser and any other type of alcohol. and i don't know that massachusetts really understands that on the internet, in newspaper ads you are going to see marijuana everywhere. when you think of colorado what do you think of now you think of marijuana. massachusetts rich history, amazing place, education, healthcare we don't want
get pot. >> speaking of colorado you were one of the senators who made a trip over there. what was your finding? were you open-minded about it when you went out? >> anecdotally i'll be honest i didn't think it was a good idea but i didn't realize the significance. i didn't know what i know now. i have spent a year on this issue now. there are more pot shops in colorado than starbucks, mcdonald's, and 7-elevens. what about the black saying if you legalize this the black market it will go away or at least be significantly cut? >> first of all, they allow every homeowner in the commonwealth that has two adults in there to grow 12 pot plants, 12 pot plants. a pot plant will grow to full maturn the in full maturity in five months. do you think those people that are growing it at home will be looking for i.d.s. they will be exporting it just like they do in colorado.
challenge people go look at this. go onto colorado talk about the black market and ask them if it's gone away it hasn't. >> part of the argument is that massachusetts tax rate would be significantly lower where as in colorado or washington it's much, much higher. we're proposing something around i think a total of 10% whereas in colorado it's over it's about what 37%, 40%. >> 37% in washington state it's 28% there. but the reality these people that are growing it at home can sell it cheaper. the point of the matter that's one issue that's a real concern there. is no tax revenue. it will cost the commonwealth mcconnell. in colorado the governor just came out with his state of the state how much it was going to cost for the budget they're spending about $46 million a year in regulating. not unattended just regulating it. at 3.75% in a billion dollar market that's 37.5 million.
so as a revenue standpoint it's going to be taking away. again this is an all cash business. which means a lot of it is going to be hidden. >> state senator thanks so much for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> last night on this program sharman talked to the other side people who support legalizing marijuana for recreational use. >> you can find that fox25boston.com. very busy. >> up next the latest on the red sox and patriots and we take you to westwood where they were rocking and rolling for the fox 25 cameras for high school game day with the wolverines
i'm a public school teacher in massachusetts, and i've reviewed question 2. it will make public education even stronger, because question 2 would allow more access to public charter schools, so parents have more choices for their kids' education, and public charter schools don't take funds away from public education. in fact, question 2 will result in more funding for education in massachusetts. please vote yes on question 2
an hour ago. i was surprised we're not sure how significant this injury is. a lot of people think jimmy g will make the big comeback. 61% say jimmy garoppolo will be the quarterback and bissett and 13% say a free agent. >> well, if jimmy g doesn't start, when will he start after that with brady coming back. we do know this, it doesn't look like jacoby brissett's thumb injury will need surgery. that's what a source is he did hurt his right thumb sometime in the third quarter. trainers received tending to the thumb on the streets bench. not sure be exactly when the injury happened but on several plays like this one the handoff to julian edelman jacoby can be seen looking down at his hand after the play. let's talk about the red sox. david ortiz and the sox in st. pete tonight. papi the first inning two run shot off chris sharper.
drew goes five strong innings. he gave up just that one run right there with a solo homer. brad and four other sox relievers with four scoreless innings. 2-1 the sox win their ninth in a row. their magic number is four. high school game day from westwood tonight. big night for the wolverines with those cool helmets. westford already up 8-0. reed wilson 37 yards to junior jake the nice catch and an even better run to make it westwood then goes with the wildcat that direct snap for jake's older brother rob. 50 yards for rob. 29-0 westwood at the break. hopkinton would score to start the second half. that one for 67 yards. wow. the brothers pouring it on. hopkinton tonight six touchdowns all accounted for by them. westwood over hopkinton. coming up, go to butch
