Vermont Legislature First to Pass Cannabis Legalization Measure
“Vermont’s legislature has approved a bill that, if signed by Republican Gov. Phil Scott, would legalize cannabis possession and small grows for adults while creating a Marijuana Regulation Commission that will draft legislation for a tax-and-regulate system.
“The passage marks the first time a state legislature has approved ending cannabis prohibition.
“Under the law, adults 21-and-older can possess up to 1 ounce of cannabis and grow up to two mature and four immature plants beginning on July 1, 2018. The Marijuana Regulation Commission is directed to draft legislation for a comprehensive market by Nov. 1, with the bill ready for a vote by Jan. 2018.”
