In Their Own Words : Legislators Summarize S.54

Posted on January 28th, 2020 to Cannabis News by

In Vermont, S.54 is the most advanced ‘tax-and-regulate’ cannabis bill that would start the process of allowing legal sales of THC cannabis to all 21+ adults, including creating a commission, advisory board, and six types of licenses that would eventually be issued.

On Thursday, January 23, 2020, the Vermont House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture & Forestry heard testimony from Representative John Gannon (D-Wilmington), a member of the House Committee on Government Operations, who walked the House Agriculture committee through the 90-page bill as of January 28, 2020.

This audio-only file is presented in its entirety without commentary — this bill is likely to be further amended in February/March 2020. If and when that happens, this description will be updated. For more information, visit and @Vermontijuana
