    Vermont governor signs marijuana legislation

    • Last Monday, Vermont Governor Phil Scott (R) signed legislation legalizing the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana by individuals over the age of 21 and allowing individuals to grow up to two marijuana plants in their homes. The legislation does not allow for retail sales of marijuana in the state. The law takes effect on July 1, 2018.
    • Vermont is now the first state to legalize marijuana through the state legislature rather than a ballot initiative. The state House and the state Senate approved the legislation earlier this month.
    • Eight other states—Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Nevada, California, Massachusetts, and Maine—have legalized marijuana through ballot initiatives.
    • Vermont is currently one of 17 states under divided government: Republican Phil Scott holds the governor’s office while Democrats hold majorities in the state House and the state Senate.
