Vermont could become the second state in the nation to legalize adult-use marijuana sales through its legislature. The passage of recreational sales is dependent on a compromise measure hammered out by lawmakers passes both chambers and is set to be signed into law in the coming weeks.

In Vermont, the big question mark is what Republican Gov. Phil Scott will do, MPP spokesman Matt Simon said, “Nobody has a clue” what Scott’s position is on the bill, Simon said. “It’s not a hard no.
