Congratulations To The State Of Vermont!


Vermont has become the ninth state to legalize cannabis. Earlier this month legislature was passed that allows adults 21 and older to possess and grow their own cannabis.

The situation is unique since this is the first time cannabis has been legalized via legislature instead of a ballot initiative. The hope is it will decrease crime rates and allow police to concentrate on more pressing issues in the state.

Though possession and growing will be allowed, there will be no commercial market like there is in states like Colorado, California, and Nevada. So cannabis will be a more private endeavor; one practiced behind closed doors.

The state may consider a commercial market at a later point once public safety issues like highway safety, education, and prevention of illegal activity are solidified. There is a committee already in place to assess these issues, so perhaps the commercial market is closer than it seems.   

Republican Gov. Phil Scott had this to say about the recent development: “I personally believe that what adults do behind closed doors and on private property is their choice, so long as it does not negatively impact the health and safety of others, especially children.” A fair opinion, one many others also hold.
