Massachusetts was once a leading state in the criminalization of cannabis. In 1911, the state became the first in the nation to outlaw the use of cannabis. In 2016, voters in the state reversed course after 115 years to legalize the recreational use of cannabis. This move followed closely on the heels of the state’s decision to legalize medicinal marijuana in 2012.
On the reverse side of 1 oz Silver Antique Legalized Collection Massachusetts Rounds is the image of a colonial Minuteman militia member holding his long rifle in one hand and calmly pull on a joint in his left hand. The inscriptions include “Republic of Massachusetts” and “Question 4 2016.”
Legal recreational sales of marijuana did not begin right away in the state. It took Massachusetts nearly three full years to get medicinal marijuana dispensaries up and running, and following the 2016 passage of Question 4, federal government scare tactics had slowed the opening of recreational providers. However, July 2018 saw legal sales in the state begin in earnest.
The obverse face of 1 oz Silver Antique Legalized Collection Massachusetts Rounds features the cannabis leaf. It has two hands cuffed together and bound with a chain, and there is also a chain surrounding the entire design field. Both are a nod to federal efforts to derail legalization around the country.
