It looks like Vermont is set to become the ninth state to completely legalize marijuana. According to Tom Angell at MJ moment, this could be happening “within a matter of weeks”.
A multi-partisan group of officials, including Gov. Phil Scott say they are ready to pass a bill that legalizes adult use cannabis.
For the time being, this bill would make possessing and cultivating cannabis legal for VT citizens, but will not allow any commercial sales. This will be very different from laws in the existing 8 legal states, but should be interesting to watch and see how things progress.
If all goes to plan, we could see adult use legalized in Vermont by January 2018. Stay tuned!
