Mass. Recreational Weed Could Bring Terror to Boston
An upcoming legalization law in Massachusetts could cause a mass panic among the public and drive recreational weed users to commit acts of terror.
Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey says that if recreational marijuana is legalized, it will bring the possibility of mass violence and violence against the law enforcement agencies, which have been working hard to keep the peace during a wave of violent incidents in recent years.
State Police Chief Kevin Walsh said on Thursday that a growing number of people are starting to commit violent acts and violence by turning to recreational marijuana.
Healey said it was too early to determine if recreational weed will bring increased violence.
The governor has repeatedly stated that the legalization of recreational marijuana will not be a threat to public safety, Healey said.
She said that the Massachusetts State Police are doing their best to protect the people of Massachusetts, and they are doing everything they can to keep people safe.
Healey also said the governor is looking into the possibility that the recreational pot could increase the amount of deadly substances, including fentanyl, she said.
He also noted that people who are already addicted to opioids are turning to the drug to cope with their addiction.
