Left Side of the Aisle #104 - Part 3

Good news #3: Vermont moving to decriminalize marijuana

Some good news on a different front:

Vermont’s House of Representatives has passed a bill that would decriminalize marijuana for adults. The measure passed by a vote of 92 to 49. The bill now goes to the Senate where it is expected to pass by a similarly large margin.

Vermont governor Peter Shumlin called marijuana decriminalization one of his top priorities for this legislative session so it's safe to say he will sign the bill after it has passed.

According to the fiscal note which the state attaches to changes like this, the bill could save the state as much as $400,000 a year.
