BURLINGTON, VT (NEWS10) — Could Vermont be the next state to legalize recreational marijuana?
The Vermont Public Health Association is hosting a session at the University of Vermont Medical Center in an effort to expand public and political dialogue on this issue and explore recommendations for the upcoming legislative session.
Lawmakers want to know what kind of impact legalization is having in states that have already passed similar legislation before they move forward.
Organizers say experts will be on hand to share research on the economic and health impacts of legalizing and regulating recreational marijuana.
Attendees should make their way to the Davis Auditorium on Thursday, October 29. Refreshments will be served at 5 p.m. and the presentation will begin at 5:30 p.m.
The session is free and open to the public.
