MASSACHUSETTS: Boston Mayor Marty Walsh says he’s more than willing to lead the charge against the legalization of pot in Massachusetts.
Supporters of legalized marijuana are working to put the issue on the ballot for voters to decide in 2016.
Walsh told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Monday that making pot legal would be a “slippery slope.”
“Not everyone that smokes marijuana becomes an addict,” said Walsh, who is a recovering alcoholic. “But most of the folks that I know that are having issues with drugs started with marijuana.”
Four states currently allow for recreational marijuana use, while the Bay State has legalized pot for medicinal purposes only.
