On Nov. 6, Massachusetts voters will be asked to vote on three questions along with the state and federal political races.
Question 3 is regarding the legalization of medical marijuana.
"This proposed law would eliminate state criminal and civil penalties for the medical use of marijuana by qualifying patients. To qualify, a patient must have been diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition," the Massachusetts Secretary of State's website says.
According to the website a "yes" vote would allow for patients to smoke marijuana if it is prescribed by a doctor.
A "no" vote would make no change to the current law and keep the practice illegal.
