SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) — You'll have the chance to answer three ballot questions in this November's
Advocates for three controversial issues say they submitted enough signatures to make today's deadline.
The Secretary of state's office is still counting them now.
Voters will be asked if they support legalizing
medical marijuana, allowing terminally ill adults to self-administer a
life-ending drug and requiring
car manufacturers to provide software needed to diagnose car trouble to independent repair shops.
The questions are binding, which means if they pass they'll become law.
"I like to make decisions and not just let the
judges make decisions for us, I'd rather have the people come out and say yes or no or whatever they like,” Edward Grimaldi of Agawam told 22News.
On the 2010
ballot voters were asked 18 non-binding questions about medical marijuana to gauge support for overhauling the state's marijuana laws.
