Vermont Statehouse Cannabis Regulation and Legalization bill

"Vermont in particular doesn't care very much what the attorney general thinks", said Matt Simon, New England political director for the pro-legalization Marijuana Policy Project.

The bill removes the civil penalty and fine for possessing one ounce or less of marijuana, and allows limited growing of marijuana plants.

"I made that commitment", Scott said.

The bill does not create a tax-and-regulate system for the sale of marijuana.

"We have to come up with a way to determine impairment on our highways, regardless of what the substance is", Scott says. Earlier this week the House passed the bill by an 81-63 vote, after far lengthier debate.

The Vermont Senate has voted to legalize recreational marijuana, putting the state back on path towards becoming the first in the country to legalize cannabis with its legislative body rather than a ballot measure. Now that it has passed the state Senate, the bill will be sent to Governor Phil Smith for his signature. All other legal states have enacted their laws through ballot initiatives, which don't exist at the state-level in Vermont. 511, a bill that would legalize cannabis for adults. "MPP is proud to have helped lead the Vermont effort, just as we led the legalization ballot initiative campaigns in ME and MA in 2016".

Scott previously vetoed a recreational marijuana bill last May, declaring that he wasn't opposed to recreational marijuana but wanted to form a committee to study the issue's implementation in Vermont.

Six the states that have legalized recreational marijuana now have laws in place that let adults purchase retail weed from legal dispensaries - Alaska, California, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon and Washington state. Sanctioned to smoke, carry, or grow under the new legislation, residents will find the commercial cultivation or distribution of marijuana will remain a crime in the state.
