(WPTZ) Will Canadian election affect Vermont's push to legalize pot?

wptz trudeau story yes

By also mentioning the upcoming VT Senate Committee Meetings (11/3 & 11/19), I'd say that they answered their own question with a resounding yes.  Got us all to watch the video, which included the following quotes from elected officials:

SEN. RICHARD SEARS (D-BENNINGTON): PERSONALLY I HAVE A NUMBER OF CONCERNS ABOUT LEGALIZATION BUT AM OPEN TO DISCUSSION. ONE CONCERN IS HOW WE CAN ELIMINATE THE BLACK MARKET.

SEN. PHIL BARUTH (D-CHITTENDEN COUNTY): I DON'T THINK UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WE SHOULD RUSH OUR TIMELINE TO MEET CHALLENGES FROM OTHER POTENTIAL SELLERS OF MARIJUANA. I JUST DON'T THINK WE OUGHT TO BE DOING IT FOR THE MONEY
