Baker also got a bit irritated when a reporter asked him about reconsidering making recreational pot shops “essential,” like liquor stores are. He repeated his earlier comments that if he did let pot shops open, people would drive to Massachusetts from all over the northeast and defeat the social distancing he said is a key part in flattening the curve in Massachusetts.

He did not discuss making pot shops open to just Massachusetts residents and said he was getting sick of the topic, because he’s really focused on slowing the surge of Covid-19 cases that could hit the state within the next couple of days and so “saving the lives of tens of thousands of people,” and he would hope other people would feel that way as well.
