Vermont Senate passes recreational marijuana bill, gov has said he’ll sign MONTPELIER, Vt. — Vermont is poised to become the first state in the country to approve the recreational use of marijuana by an act of the Legislature rather than through a citizen referendum. The state Senate approved bill H.511 Wednesday by voice vote. Republican Gov. Phil Scott has indicated he would sign the bill, which was approved by the House last week. The bill would allow adults over 21 to possess of up to 1 ounce of marijuana and have two mature marijuana plants or four immature plants. The legislation does not contain a mechanism to regulate the production and sale of marijuana, as has been done in some other states. Scott vetoed similar legislation last May. Some backers of the proposal call it a baby step and they hope the Legislature will pass a tax-and-regulation system. This story is developing and will be updated. Fuck you Sessions!!
