 In Legalization, Local News, Recreational Marijuana

A simpler, stripped down marijuana legalization bill is being reviewed by the Vermont House Judiciary Committee after legislation that would have created a structure similar to Colorado’s legal marijuana program failed during the last legislative session.

Vermont House Bill 170 – would  legalize two ounces or less of marijuana  and cultivation of two mature marijuana plants and seven immature marijuana plants for a person who is 21 years of age or older. It also adjusts civil and criminal penalties for possession and cultivation of marijuana, establishes penalties for furnishing marijuana to those under 21 years of age, and makes it a crime to extract chemicals from marijuana.
