Legal marijuana in the state of Vermont may not happen.
Two separate measures in Vermont’s House will likely miss a key deadline Friday to advance to the Senate. The first bill introduced in January would allow for personal cultivation of marijuana and legal possession of small amounts.
A separate measure introduced in February relies on the earlier bill to pass. It would create a regulatory structure for taxing marijuana, but only if the earlier bill passes and marijuana is legalized.
The governor of Vermont, Phil Scott has said he would veto any bill that does not give police a reliable and accurate way to measure driver impairment under the influence of marijuana.
