Vermont Medical & Recreational Dispensaries
Congratulations VT, Recreational Weed Is Here!
Recreational marijuana in Vermont is now legal, making VT the ninth state to legalize it for adult recreational use. Also the first state to legalize recreational marijuana through a pure legislative vote. The law allows for adults over 21 and over will be able to possess up to 1 ounce, or 28 grams of cannabis as well as two mature marijuana plants and four baby plants.
The new law did not set up a system to tax or regulate the production of marijuana. There are no provisions in the law for recreational dispensary locations in Vermont. Residents must grow it themselves or buy it from illicit dealers. Smoking weed is allowed although barred in public spaces. Renters will need to get permission from landlords to use or grow their own marijuana plants at home.
Don’t smoke in a car: Both drivers and passengers are forbidden from smoking weed. The fines also go up for anyone who smokes with a child in the car.
Don’t smoke on the beach, in a park, on the sidewalk or any other public place: In the law, marijuana use is limited to home use.
Don’t smoke on Lake Champlain: The lake is considered federal waters under federal rule. Medical and recreational marijuana is still illegal there.
Don’t sell it: There is no legal commercial market or recreational dispensaries for cannabis in Vermont.
