On Wednesday, October 7, Gov. Phil Scott announced that he will allow S. 54, the bill to legalize, regulate, and tax cannabis sales, to become law without his signature. This is a huge step forward for cannabis policy in Vermont!
Vermont legislators have finally sent two very important bills to the desk of Gov. Phil Scott! The bill to legalize and regulate sales (S. 54) and the bill to automatically expunge records for past cannabis misdemeanor offenses (S. 234) both passed the Senate in a final vote on September 22 and will soon proceed to the governor’s desk.
Vermont legislators have finally agreed to a compromise on the bill to legalize and regulate cannabis sales!
We knew that Vermonters support legalizing and regulating sales of cannabis, but a new poll conducted by Public Policy Polling and commissioned by the Marijuana Policy Project found that support is truly overwhelming.
