Public Hearing For Vermont Marijuana Legalization Coming Up
Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, November, 7th 2014 by THCFinder
Vermont is on my list of states that could potentially legalize marijuana via the Legislature between now and 2016. So far, no state has ever legalized marijuana via its legislature, only via a citizen’s initiative. The RAND Corporation has been conducting a study on what marijuana legalization would look like in Vermont, and there is a public hearing scheduled for next week to discuss the issue. Via The Joint Blog:
Vermont Governor Peter Schumlin’s administration has announced that they’ll be holding a public hearing on November 12th as part of the state’s continuing examination of cannabis legalization.
According to a press release sent out by the administration, the hearing will “provide Vermonters with the ability to contribute comments for a legislatively-mandated study on the issues involved with possible legalization of marijuana production, distribution and possession in the State of Vermont.”
RAND’s Co-Director Beau Kilmer will be in attendance at the November 12th public hearing. The hearing is scheduled to take place from 3:30PM to 5:30PM, which can be watched via Vermont Interactive Technologies centers around the state. I’m very curious to see what is said at the hearing, especially from the public. With there now being four states with legalization on the books, along with Washington D.C., momentum has never been greater for reform.
