Vermont Marijuana Legalization Bill Goes to Senate as The Vermont Senate Committee on Appropriations approved a bill (4-3) on Monday that would end marijuana prohibition in the state and regulate marijuana for adult use. It is now expected to receive a full Senate vote.
Plus, Utah medical marijuana faces uphill battle in House after Senate’s OK as a plan to legalize the use of edible, vapor and topical marijuana products by those with chronic conditions cleared a key vote in Utah’s Senate on Thursday after the Mormon church relaxed some of its opposition to the measure.
The plan from a Republican lawmaker picked up a few more votes of support in recent days after extra restrictions were added to the plan and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a faith to which most lawmakers belong, softened its stance.
