Vermont senate passes marijuana legalization bill
12 January, 2018, 18:38
Scott has said he would sign the bill, following his veto last session of a measure that also would have legalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana and permitted the cultivation of a few plants.
A significant moment for the Green Mountain State as well as American history, Vermont has become the first state to legalize marijuana through the state's legislative process.
The new law would put Vermont at odds with US Attorney General Sessions, who last week rescinded the Cole Memorandum rule set forth by President Barack Obama, which eased enforcement of federal marijuana laws in states that opted to regulate marijuana outside the confines of federal prohibition.
The bill soon goes to the state's Republican governor, who says he will sign it.
Vermont is on its way to becoming the ninth state with legal marijuana.
Legislation that would legalize marijuana for those 21 and older has been approved by Vermont's full Senate.
Scott had vetoed an earlier version of the bill, but his concerns were addressed in the revised legislation that passed Wednesday.

For now, anyway. The bill also calls for a task force appointed by the governor to study the issue and recommend "legislation on implementing and operating a comprehensive regulatory and revenue system for an adult marijuana market" by December 31.
Scott said during his news conference Thursday that he's been briefed on the report and doesn't see anything in it that would change his mind on whether to sign the bill. They even gained a few votes a year ago. The Vermont bill would permit adults to possess up to an ounce of marijuana, and have two mature plants or four immature plants in their home. Simon thinks there's a chance the committee could send it back and say "none of our business", but he thinks the outlook on the bill's future is hazy.
