Vermont Legalization Overview

On January 22, 2018, Governor Phil Scott signed a bill into law which legalized the use and possession of marijuana for individuals 21 years of age and older, making Vermont the 9th state to legalize marijuana.

The other eight states - Colorado, Oregon, Nevada, Washington, Alaska, California, Massachusetts, and Maine - passed similar laws through voter-approved ballot measures. Vermont is the first state to legalize marijuana through legislation.

  • The law will take effect July 1, 2018.
  • The law does not set up a system to tax and regulate the production and sale of marijuana.
  • Individuals 21 years of age and older may possess up to an ounce of marijuana and grow up to two plants in their home.
