Will Vermont Be the Next State to Legalize Marijuana?
Earlier this year, Vermont’s governor Phil Scott, a Republican, decided to veto a bill that would have legalized marijuana. A blow was dealt to Vermonters in support of legalization. Fortunately, not all hope was lost. The governor sent the bill back to the legislature for changes to be made. He claims that he isn’t “philosophically opposed to ending the prohibition on marijuana.”
Changes To The Bill
The governor expressed several concerns about the bill in a letter he wrote. For one, he wants to find out if there are devices that can detect whether or not one is impaired from cannabis.
“To my mind, there is no general agreement on the impact of the public safety impacts, the role of marijuana in highway accidents and fatalities, the impact on the developing brain and at what age that is most impactful so developing a baseline of data is very important,” Jaye Pershing Johnson, legal counsel to the governor, told the Marijuana Advisory Commission.

California Regulator Admits to Anxiety as Legal Pot Nears
LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — In about three months, recreational marijuana sales will kick off in California, yet no one knows exactly how the pot economy will work.
It could take until late November for the state to issue regulations that will govern the new marketplace.
Meanwhile, growers and sellers are wondering how the industry can function when some operators will have licenses and others might not. There are also questions about banking and federal law enforcement, since pot remains illegal in the eyes of the U.S. government.
“We all have anxiety,” top state marijuana regulator Lori Ajax told an industry group Thursday. “It’s not going to be perfect.”
