Southern Vermont will host three public hearings on marijuana policy!

Senators will listen to testimony in Bennington, Brattleboro, and Springfield on January 18

The Senate Judiciary Committee wants to hear what people in southern Vermont think about the idea of ending marijuana prohibition and replacing it with a system of sensible regulations. Public hearings have been announced for Monday, January 18 at the following locations:

Bennington — Bennington Fire Facility, 130 River Street, 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Brattleboro — Brattleboro Union High School, 131 Fairground Road, 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Springfield — Riverside Middle School, 13 Fairground Road, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

According to an article in the Bennington Banner, “The goal is to get opinions from people who can not easily get to Montpelier… People will be asked to sign in before they speak and limit their comments to between five and eight minutes in length.”

If you are able to testify in favor of replacing prohibition with a sensible, regulated approach in Vermont, please do so! Here are some talking points you may find helpful. The more professional and respectful presence we can bring to the public hearings, the better legislators will hear our message.
