Statement from MMS President on Passage of Question 4
“It is disappointing that the commercial interests of marijuana have won out over the health and safety of citizens in the Commonwealth. Physicians will continue their advocacy to warn citizens about the dangers of recreational marijuana and pledge to work with state officials to ensure that public health oversight, protections for teens and adolescents, and provisions for education, treatment and recovery are included as the law is implemented.”
