Heady Vermont Staff 29 Mar 2022

On Friday, March 25, Gov. Phill Scott signed into law a key bill that prepares Vermont for the sale of adult use cannabis in October, H.701.

So far this session, only H.701 has become law. The bill sets licensing fees for all cannabis establishments, as well as for patients, caregivers and dispensaries that participate in the Vermont Medical Cannabis Registry. 

As Vermont’s 2022 legislative session passes its midpoint and the crossover period comes to a close, advocates are gauging the momentum of other cannabis-related measures still under consideration.

Vermont Growers Association has launched consumer and business petitions to urge legislators to remove THC caps and reform prohibitive product language in Act 164.
