Vermont Lawmakers Send Marijuana Legalization Bill To Governor's Desk

Vermont Lawmakers Send Marijuana Legalization Bill To Governor's Desk

Gov. Phil Scott has indicated that he'll sign it into law, which would make Vermont the first state to legalize recreational marijuana through legislation rather than by voter initiative.

This week, a bill to legalize the recreational use of marijuana cleared the Vermont Senate. "Public opinion obviously matters, but again, I have to do what I think is right for the state throughout from a public safety standpoint". The retail sales haven't been decided yet, and a special commission is created to analyze and determine to best possible strategy for regulation and taxing.

GOP Sen. Randy Brock of Franklin, VT - who was recently appointed to fill a vacancy - said he voted against the bill after hearing opposition from medical professionals, law enforcement officials, and educators. "This is a federal question", Randy said.

According to an investigation conducted by the Marijuana Policy Project, the first five states that legalized pot in the US (Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Nevada), generated over $485 million in tax revenue in the first nine months of 2017 from cannabis sales.

The VC1 is calculated using the price to book value, price to sales, EBITDA to EV, price to cash flow, and price to earnings. A ratio greater than one indicates an undervalued company, while a ratio less than one means a company is overvalued.

"Vermont in particular doesn't care very much what the attorney general thinks".

The New Hampshire House approved a similar legalization on Tuesday. "With the way this bill is written, having a few plants, there's nothing that the feds could do even if they wanted to".

While the threat of federal intervention was not the driving force in the two states' moves to legalize personal possession and cultivation, but not a legal, taxed, and regulated marijuana market, the lack of legal commerce may provide some cover from federal prosecutors, who would be left looking for people with an ounce of weed or a couple of plants.
