Travel guru Rick Steves to tour state for pot legalization

The Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — Travel guru Rick Steves is kicking off a tour of Massachusetts in support of a pro-marijuana ballot question.

On Tuesday, Steves will appear at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst at an event sponsored by the UMass Campus Cannabis Reform Coalition. On Wednesday, Steves plans to discuss legalization and the concerns of families at the UMass Club in Boston.

On Thursday Steves will talk about the marijuana legalization question at Suffolk University Law School in Boston.

Steves is host of the PBS series "Rick Steves' Europe" and a long-time advocate of easing marijuana laws.

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, Democratic Attorney General Maura Healey and Democratic Boston Mayor Marty Walsh oppose Question 4.

They say legalizing pot could lead people to harder drugs, including opioids, which have sparked a health crisis in Massachusetts.
