Vermont retail marijuana market goes up in smoke

MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) A legal retail marijuana market will not become law this year in Vermont.

A bill cleared the Senate weeks ago but House Speaker Mitzi Johnson says the House does not have enough time.

Johnson says two committees still need to review the tax-and-fee structure and decide how much money goes to education, prevention and training.

She says the bill will come up again when lawmakers return next January for the second half of the legislative biennium.
