Rhode Island’s attorney general has launched a campaign against the legalization of recreational marijuana in the state.
Attorney General Peter Kilmartin, a Democrat, announced a new coalition of legal pot opponents Thursday.
Legislators in the Democrat-controlled General Assembly have been considering marijuana legalization more seriously since the November election, when Massachusetts voters approved a ballot measure legalizing recreational pot for adults in their state.
Legalization advocacy group Regulate Rhode Island questions why Kilmartin is using state employees to lobby against a popular cause.
