Bestselling guidebook author and public TV travel host Rick Steves, an ardent proponent of marijuana legalization, will complete an East Coast advocacy tour in Vermont, with visits to Montpelier and Burlington.

Steves is a long-time advocate for sensible cannabis policy in the United States, serving on the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) advisory board. He helped his home state of Washington develop its legal cannabis regulations, and in 2016 he advocated for successful legalization initiatives in Massachusetts and Maine.

Steves will be in the state house Thursday Feb. 15 for a news conference with legislators and advocates to encourage Vermont to take the next step by taxing and regulating a commercial cannabis market. The news conference will be at 1:30 p.m. in the Cedar Creek room. He will also meet with legislators and be available for additional media interviews.
