Healey: No regrets on 2016 marijuana opposition

Massachusetts voters in 2016 voted to legalize recreational use of marijuana over the objections of Attorney General Maura Healey. Six years later, as a candidate for governor, Healey doesn’t regret her position.

“I wouldn’t say that I regret it, Jim,” she told Greater Boston host Jim Braude Wednesday night. Healey said that during the ballot question campaign she was very concerned about the effects of the proposal on young people with respect to use, addiction and mental health. Was she wrong, Braude asked.
