Vermont Senate will host public hearings in Burlington and St. Johnsbury on marijuana policy!

Senators will listen to testimony January 19 and 20

The Senate Judiciary Committee wants to hear what people in Vermont think about the idea of ending marijuana prohibition and replacing it with a system of sensible regulations. Public hearings have been announced for Tuesday, January 19 in Burlington, and Wednesday, January 20 in St. Johnsbury. Here are the locations and times:

Tuesday — University of Vermont, Davis Center, Grand Maple Ballroom (4th Floor), 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Wednesday — St. Johnsbury Academy, 1000 Main Street, 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Three hearings will already have taken place Monday in southern Vermont. According to an article in the Bennington Banner, “The goal is to get opinions from people who cannot 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
