Vermont Legislature Votes to Legalize; Gov Expected to Sign

Vermont Senate expected to vote Wednesday on Marijuana Bill Vermont poised to approve recreational marijuana
Marlene Weaver | 12 January, 2018, 18:40

Colchester Police Chief Jennifer Morrison, of the Vermont Association of Chiefs of Police.

A bill has been introduced in the New Jersey Legislature that would legalize recreational marijuana.

"Rhode Island legislators did not want to be the first state legislature to legalize adult-use cannabis".

"What I've been hearing from a lot of prospective investors is that they were waiting for the legalization bill to pass". Supporters of medical marijuana are hoping the laws will change. "We find this behavior irresponsible, extremely frustrating and concerning".

Sessions is a longtime opponent of legalized marijuana. There is no roadside test for marijuana akin to a Breathalyzer, which police use to test motorists' blood alcohol content to determine if they are intoxicated. While there is no reliable blood test to indicate impairment, there are drug recognition experts who are trained to identify drug-induced impairment. Lawmakers subsequently drafted a revised version addressing the governor's concerns, and that bill passed the state House last week by a vote of 81 to 63.

In addition to roadway safety, Scott instructed the commission to look at taxation, education and prevention, with a focus on youth. He was concerned that it didn't address child or road safety enough. Only 39% expressed opposition. Some lawmakers may press to establish a market for the sale of marijuana after that. Sessions says federal prosecutors should decide on their own whether to devote resources to marijuana cases.

Passed with a simple voice vote, the "Yea" vote won.

Fifty-seven percent of Vermont voters support allowing adults 21 and older to possess and grow limited amounts of marijuana, according to a statewide survey of 755 registered voters conducted in March by Public Policy Polling. It would be better, he said, to do it through a tax-and-regulate structure than by H.511, which he called the "worst possible" way of legalizing pot.

During the last legislative session Scott vetoed a measure that also would have legalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana and permitted the cultivation of a few plants.

A particular concern is the adverse effect of marijuana on the developing brains of young people, which has been documented in research at the University of Vermont.

If the cannabis industry has an impresario in Vermont, his name is Eli Harrington. "There is nothing about the report that cures the problems that are presented".
