Cannabis Legislation Outline Emerging From Senate Gov't Ops Committee

On Thursday, November 19, 2015, the Vermont State Senate Government Operations Committee hosted a second public forum in Montpelier.  This second hearing allowed the attending members of the public and press to witness the committee process of drafting a law.  The first completed draft of the bill itself is expected to be drafted around mid-December and come from the Gov't Ops Committee and then move to the Judiciary Committee.

  • VT SENATE GOV'T OPS COMMITTEE Draft of Cannabis Control Board...while the discussion of a commission (to help with initial set-up and monitoring) and a control board (who would be permanent and appointed once laws are in place) is a new and welcome component, please note this is only a draft which is already being updated and is used purely for discussion purposes.  Thanks again to the Legislative Council for sharing this draft!
