Senate re-confirms Marijuana legalization on third reading

The Senate today reconfirmed on third reading its passage of legislation that would legalize marijuana.  The legislation, initially passed Friday by a vote of 21 to 9, would create a system to regulate and tax retails sales of marijuana - largely mirroring legislation passed last year by the senate - while also allowing home-grown marijuana and small-scale farming operations. 
The Senate’s legislation was an amendment to the House-passed H.167.  A number of options now exist for the legislation, including the House voting favorably for the amendment, or choosing to stick with it’s original language, which could then be sent to conference committee. 

VMS will continue to update its members as updates occur.
