Will Vt. lawmakers look at legalizing marijuana?

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

A move to legalize marijuana could be on the agenda at the Vermont Statehouse this year.

Last year, the Legislature passed a law decriminalizing possession of small amounts of pot. Vermont also now has stores that dispense medical marijuana. But advocates want to follow Colorado and Washington state and fully legalize the drug.

Chittenden County Senator David Zuckerman has authored a bill that regulates and taxes marijuana sales.

A similar bill was introduced in the House last year, but lawmakers opted for decriminalization instead.
