Vermont Now Accepting Applications for Pardons of Cannabis Charges

vermontStarting today, December 8th, and going until Christmas day, December 25h, Vermont Governor Peter E. Shumlin will consider pardoning “convictions of marijuana possession up to one ounce for those with no felony convictions or violent criminal convictions.” The possession of up to an ounce of cannabis was decriminalized by lawmakers in the state in 2013.

“A governor’s pardon is an extraordinary act”, state’s the governor’s office. “Applying for a pardon does not guarantee a pardon will be granted. All applications will be considered by the Governor and either granted or denied at his discretion.”

The application can be found and completed on by clicking here.

Questions about this form should be directed to the Governor’s office at 802-828-3333.
