Vermont House approves marijuana legislation

January 05, 2018 09:33 AM

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont's House of Representatives has signed off on legislation that would allow adults 21 years old or older to possess up to 1 ounce (28.35 grams) of marijuana and grow marijuana at their homes.
The legislation would make the Green Mountain State the latest to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.
The Burlington Free Press says the bill would not create a legal market for marijuana and would not impose any taxes.
The measure will have to return to the Senate for another vote. Senate leaders say a vote could come next week.
Republican Gov. Phil Scott has said he'd sign the legislation.
