More than 20 Vermont communities have approved adult-use cannabis operations in recent town meetings, according to the Associated Press. Vermont is taking a local approach to rolling out its adult-use cannabis system. Instead of outright legalization across the state, voters can approve the adult-use industry on a town-by-town basis. Once a town votes in favor, businesses can apply for retail licenses, which are then considered by a state board. According to the report, at least three towns have “rejected” cannabis sales, but most recently a surge of communities including Bennington, Brattleboro, Burlington, Montpelier, Vergennes, Waterbury, and Winooski added their names to the “approve” column. Vermont’s adult-use cannabis journey looks a bit different from a lot of states.
