2016 Massachusetts ballot measures

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Four statewide ballot measures were certified for the 2016 ballot in the state of Massachusetts.[1]

Question 1 would have allowed a second slots parlor to exist in Massachusetts, Question 2 would have let state education officials approve up to 12 new charter schools a year, Question 3 will phase out what advocates say are "extreme" methods of farm animal confinement, and Question 4 legalizes marijuana for recreational use.

Ballot Question 3 is complicated. It's about the containment of farm animals. So, that's calves raised for veal, breeding pigs used for pork and egg laying hens. A yes would phase out cages that confine them to such a point that they can't expand their wings or stand up and turn around, which isn't a huge issue in Massachusetts because there's actually only one farm in the entire state that uses these kind of confinement practices that the ballot measure is trying to put an end to. But a yes would also ban products that come from animals that have been contained, which is basically how factory farms produce animal products throughout the country. So that means we would not be able to sell those products here in Massachusetts, which is actually raising a lot of questions about pricing and how this will affect consumers. A no on question three would basically mean things will remain the same here in Massachusetts, not only on the farms but also in the grocery stores.
