Marijuana legalization passes legislature, heads to Gov. Scott's desk

With the House and Senate’s passage of S.22, a bill that legalizes the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana and two mature (and four immature) marijuana plants per household, marijuana legalization now moves to the Governor’s office

Yesterday (May 11) a letter signed by the presidents of the AAPVT and VMS, and the chief of UVM Children’s Hospital, called on Gov. Phil Scott to veto the legislation.  View the letter here
