Conference Committee Next For Pot Bill

The Massachusetts Senate is giving  its approval to a bill making some small adjustments to the  citizen-crafted marijuana law.  

The bill is different from the House  bill passed this week that makes major changes to the law.  

The House  bill calls for a 28-percent tax on retail marijuana sales, which is much  higher than the twelve-percent tax in the law approved by voters last  year.  

A conference committee will now meet to work out the differences  between the House and the Senate bills.
