BOSTON (AP) — Travel guru Rick Steves is set to tour Massachusetts in support of a pro-marijuana ballot question.
Steves plans to make three stops across the state next month to stump for Question 4, which would legalize the recreational use of marijuana.
In a statement, Steves said there are many reasons to end the prohibition on pot, including redirecting money from criminals and into state coffers. Steves plans to donate up to $100,000 to the campaign.
Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, Democratic Attorney General Maura Healey and Democratic Boston Mayor Marty Walsh oppose Question 4. They say legalizing marijuana could be a gateway to harder drugs, including opioids, which have caused a crisis in Massachusetts.
