Vermont House Bill Would Allow Legal Cannabis Sales Next Year

A new bill proposed by Rep. Sam Young (D-Greensboro) would allow adults in Vermont to legally purchase weed on January 1, 2020.

Young’s legislation to establish a regulated retail cannabis market is similar in many ways to a Senate bill, S.54, introduced last month. But the House measure, H.196, would allow existing medical marijuana dispensaries to pay a $75,000 fee so that they could sell to the general public at the beginning of next year. The state would then continue to iron out details about the regulatory structure of the recreational market before other dispensaries could open in April 2021.

In addition to giving Vermont’s would-be cannabis customers an earlier start, Young said the licensing fees would “get some funds in order to create the board and the regulated market.”

Like the Senate bill, Young’s legislation would empower a state-regulated Cannabis Control Board to oversee the market.

1. a license fee of $75K. What does a booze license cost?

Might the existing booze board just regulate pot and save a lot of money and aggravation?
