The bill only needs the governor’s signature to become law

Vermont legislators voted to approve a bill that would legalize the use of marijuana for recreational purposes reports Activist Post.

Senate Bill 22 passed the House 79-66 and legalizes the possession of less than 1 ounce of marijuana along with cultivation of two plants for every individual over 21 years of age.

The bill now awaits the signature of Gov. Phil Scott to become law. Scott has yet to say whether he will sign the bill. “I’ll take a look at the bill, but I’ve been pretty clear I’d like to see some improvements to ensure a structure in place to protect public safety in Vermont,” he stated.

Currently, seven states and the District of Columbia have laws legalizing recreational marijuana.
