Tomorrow Vermont Governor Will Sign or Veto Bill to Legalize Marijuana

Vermont Governor Phil Scott says that tomorrow he will either sign into law, or veto a measure to legalize marijuana.

Governor Phil Scott has until tomorrow, May 24th to either sign or veto a legislature-approved measure (Senate Bill 22) to legalize marijuana. If Scott doesn’t act, the bill will become law without his signature, something he says he won’t allow.

Governor Scott says that he has yet to decide whether or not he will sign or veto the measure, which would legalize the possession and personal cultivation of marijuana for those 21 and older. The bill would allow possession of up to an ounce, and personal cultivation of up to two mature and four immature plants. A commission would be established to study the possible legalization of cannabis retail outlets.
