Bill to tax, regulate marijuana sales dies in Vermont House April 28, 2018 Updated: April 28, 2018 8:23am
MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — A move by the Vermont Legislature to reconsider a bill to tax and regulate recreational marijuana was short lived.
The Vermont House on Friday killed the proposal for a year.
A coalition of House lawmakers had been pushing for legislation that would create a market for commercial marijuana sales.
Earlier this year, Republican Gov. Phil Scott signed a bill that will legalize possession of marijuana in small amounts starting July 1.
The new law allows residents to cultivate up to two personal cannabis plants. The law retains criminal penalties for large-scale cultivation and sales.
