We may have some bangin’ traffic in Massachusetts but at least we’ll be “enjoying” it for a long time, relatively. NiceRX, which is known for their herbal smoking aid, recently reported their findings showing life expectancy of residents in each of the 50 states.

Why do we live longer in Massachusetts? I’m not sure but it must mean that Dunkin’ is the fountain of youth. And if you’re curious which Massachusetts towns get the bragging rights for having the most Dunkin’ locations CLICK HERE.

And now my dear mortals, here are the Top 20 States with the LONGEST life expectancies. Sorry Mississippi, you finished last on the list meaning you have the shortest life expectancy. That stinks. But at least your state is the most fun to spell quickly. That’s something.

Also, one state does significantly better and has the longest life expectancy. Can you guess which state’s residents live the longest? Answer is at the bottom (keep scrolling!). I bet you can guess it.
