Now that recreational marijuana is legal in Massachusetts, marijuana dispensaries are set to open in the next few months across the state.

“Driver responsibility plays a huge role in keeping our roads safe – whether we’re talking about marijuana or alcohol – and we want to remind drivers not to take the wheel if they are impaired in any way.”
