As most Vermont marijuana activists know, the senate is sitting on a bill that could legalize recreational use of cannabis for adults 21 and older. According to the Denver Post, the Judiciary Committee of the Vermont Senate approved the measure 4 to 1 Friday.

Four other states, and Washington D.C., have already legalized the drug for recreational purposes. Tourists and residents can buy and possess various quantities depending on state legislature.

Gov. Peter Shumlin, of Vermont, fully supports the measure. From here, the full senate will vote. If it passes, marijuana related charges will be handled in civil court, instead of criminal as it is now.

It would still be illegal to have a grow operation at home, even if for medical purposes. Dispensaries will have to open across town to provide a legal place to purchase marijuana. People will be able to purchase and possess up to an ounce. To read more about the new legislature being proposed, check out the full article.
