A group of politicians and academics — including former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis — are piloting a program to have a committee of citizens analyze the ballot question on legalizing marijuana and draft a statement of its pros and cons to be distributed to voters.
“This is going to be a great thing for people just to get educated about this ballot referendum,” said Dukakis, a Democrat and a board member of the initiative. “There’s a lot of confusion out there. People really don’t understand this well.”
