22News inFocus: The Ballot Questions

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) — Voters have some big decisions to make in November. Last week the Secretary of State's office announced three ballot questions that Massachusetts voters will weigh in on when they head to the polls this Fall.

So this week on 22News inFocus we'll discuss these questions and give you the information you need to make an informed decision come November.

One of these ballot questions would legalize medical marijuana here in Massachusetts. We'll hear from representatives from organizations on both sides of the marijuana debate.

We'll also discuss a question that would allow terminally ill adults to obtain drugs to end their lives.

We'll also talk about what the Right to Repair Bill means for you. We'll tell you all about the ballot question that would require car makers to give independent repair shops the information they need to repair your car.
