Vt. lawmakers consider looser restrictions on medical marijuana

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

The Vermont Senate has loosened restrictions on the state's medical marijuana dispensaries.

The bill passed Tuesday allows an unlimited number of qualified Vermonters to access medical marijuana, removing the previous 1,000 patient cap.

It also gives the green light for the state to open two more dispensaries, offer patients edibles, and increase the per patient pot amounts from 2 to 4 ounces.

The bill now heads to the Vermont House.
