The committee opposing a state ballot measure that would allow doctors to prescribe marijuana submitted a web address for the state voters' guide created by the Secretary of State without registering it. Now that address is home to a spoof site declaring medical marijuana a gateway to "Twinkie addiction."
"It's funny and upsetting, I guess, at the same time," said Kevin Sabet of Cambridge, a former Obama administration advisor on drug policy and a spokesman for the No on Question 3 committee.
The group sent out a press release saying proponents of medical marijuana were tampering with the democratic process through "underhanded efforts." But, Sabet said, the committee made a mistake.
