Cannabis changes become law in Vermont

Vermont passes cannabis reform without Governor’s signature

The Cannabis Control Board in Vermont is raising awareness about the fact that the state’s cannabis laws were just updated. Despite hesitancy from Governor Phil Scott, on June 14, 2023 bill H.270 became law. Governor Scott did not sign the bill due to his concerns around the constitutionality of the Cannabis Control Board becoming an independent agency that is not accountable to the executive branch. The bill has a number of reforms that will be of benefit to patients and consumers.

The Cannabis Control Board has put together a helpful document to educate constituents about the changes. Some of the updates include increasing the maximum plant allowance to 6 mature and 12 immature plants per patient and raising the milligram limit of THC per package of adult-use edibles from 50 to 100 milligrams.
