Law’s Jonathan Entin explains impact of state Issue 1 on upcoming election

Constitutional experts breakdown State Issue 1’s impact

Spectrum NewsJonathan Entin, the David L. Brennan Professor Emeritus of Law, explained how state Issue 1 would not impact statutes, including a proposed initiative to legalize marijuana on the state’s November ballot. “Issue 1 doesn’t deal with initiatives for statutes, only popularly proposed constitutional amendments,” he said, making note of some of the issues that won’t be impacted. “So Issue 1 won’t affect the requirements for the marijuana proposal, or even if the marijuana proposal winds up on the ballot.”
