Governor Ralph Northam today released the administration’s report on the impact of legalizing adult-use marijuana in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The report is the final product of the Virginia Marijuana Legalization Work Group, and it results from a diverse, stakeholder-driven process that involved community leaders, healthcare professionals, policy experts, and government officials. This month-long effort was a key part of marijuana decriminalization legislation passed by the General Assembly earlier this year. Also, the report follows Governor Northam’s recent announcement that he intends to advance marijuana legalization in Virginia. The comprehensive report includes nearly 400 pages of meeting minutes and outlines various aspects of marijuana legalization in the Commonwealth, including taxation, banking, criminal justice, licensing and regulation, and consumer safety.
