Vermont Senate Passes Compromise Bill to Make #Marijuana Legal for Adults
The bill approved Wednesday, which addresses concerns Gov. Scott expressed when he vetoed a similar bill in May, would eliminate penalties for personal marijuana possession and cultivation by adults 21 and older; it would also create a study commission on regulating and taxing marijuana for adult use
MONTPELIER, Vt. - June 22, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Another bill that would make marijuana legal for adults in Vermont was approved by the Senate on Wednesday, the first day of a two-day veto session. H. 511 reflects a compromise between legislative leaders and Gov. Phil Scott, who vetoed a similar bill, S. 22, in late May. It will now go the House, where it is unclear if a substantial number of House Republicans will agree to waive rules and allow its consideration during the veto session.
In the past year, New York State has experienced significant and challenging growing pains since opening its program to patients. However, the recent addition of chronic pain to the list of qualifying conditions, coupled with a growing supply of certified healthcare practitioners who are qualified to make a medical cannabis recommendation, the program has seen a spike in demand.
A three-quarters vote of the House will be required for the bill to be taken up on Thursday. If the House does not pass the bill during the veto session, H. 511 could receive a vote when the House next convenes.
