Marijuana has been in the decriminalization process since 1973 with many states over the years passing laws to either authorize the use of marijuana or prohibit it. It is time to stop treating marijuana like a deadly drug, when science and public opinion agree that it is relatively safe for adult recreational and medical use. With recreational and medical marijuana on the verge of nationwide legalization, marijuana growers and dispensaries are popping up everywhere.

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) – A Vermont Senate committee has approved legislation that would set up a system for regulating the production and sale of marijuana and marijuana products in the state.
The Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday approved the bill. The measure creates a Cannabis Control Board that would adopt regulations and administer a licensing program for cannabis establishments.
Seven Days newspaper first reported on the vote.
Vermont became the ninth state to legalize recreational use of marijuana last July when the law took effect. Adults over age 21 are allowed to possess up to 1 ounce (28 grams) of marijuana, two mature marijuana plants and four immature plants, but the law did not set up a system to tax or regulate the production of marijuana.
