Governor gives a update on Cannabis in the state

“I think obviously for the commission this is the beginning and I’m anticipating that they’ll learn as they go and if they need to make adjustments, they will,” Baker said after an unrelated holiday event at Faneuil Hall. “But as I’ve said before, I thought the fact that they were deliberate in their approach to the rollout was the right way to pursue it.”

Baker, who opposed marijuana legalization when the issue was on the 2016 ballot, said drugged driving remains his “biggest concern.”

“It’s very important that people recognize and appreciate the fact that this is not something they should be doing if they’re planning to be driving,” Baker said, pointing to ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft, as well as public transportation.

“I just hope people take that part seriously,” he said.
