Bill to Improve Vermont’s Medical Marijuana Program Introduced
MONTPELIER, VT — A anticipated bill to improve Vermont’s medical marijuana program has been formally introduced to the state Senate.
Senator Jeanette K. White (D-Windham) filed Senate Bill 247 this week, which would, among other things, eliminate an existing 1,000 patient limit on patients registered with the state’s medical marijuana dispensaries and add post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to the list of qualifying conditions for medical marijuana in the state.
The bill also increases the amount of marijuana dispensaries are allowed to grow and possess. Currently, dispensaries are limited to 28 mature plants, 98 immature plants, and up to 28 ounces of marijuana. The proposed bill would increase these limits for any dispensary serving more than 14 registered patients to allow for up to 4 plants, 14 immature plants, and six ounces of marijuana per patient registered with the dispensary.
