In a US first, state legislators actually listen to their constituents. What a concept!
The Hill Reports:
Vermont's state Senate passed a bill on Wednesday that would legalize recreational marijuana use for adults over the age of 21, removing the last major roadblock on the drug's path to legalization in the state.
Gov. Phil Scott (R) is expected to sign the bill when it reaches his desk. Vermont's Senate had previously passed a version of the bill last summer, but today's vote was required to approve the state House of Representatives's decision to remove a study commission from the bill.
This is the first time Legislators have done the leg work on legalizing Mary Jane. All the previous laws have been put in place by ballot initiatives.
