Vt. state senator expected to unveil pot legalization plan

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -  Lawmakers will soon be considering a bill to legalize marijuana. 

Progressive State Senator David Zuckerman of Chittenden County began drawing up a bill this December. He says the recent release of a study commissioned by the state led him to re-think parts of his proposal.

Zuckerman concedes passage this year is unlikely but is hopeful the measure could pass in 2016.

The "high hopes" of Vermonters may hinge on how well legalization works out in other states.

Our Kyle Midura will be in Colorado next week. He's investigating what legalization looks like there and the implications for Vermont's debate.
