Vermont Becomes 8th State to Legalize Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Vermont Governor Pete Shumlin (D) signed into law yesterday a bill authorizing up to four dispensaries to sell medical marijuana to patients.

While medical marijuana is now legal in 16 states and the District of Columbia, only 8 also authorize dispensaries to provide marijuana to patients. The other 7 states are Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Maine, New Jersey, New Mexico, and Rhode Island.

Marijuana Policy Project has been instrumental in getting 5 of these state laws passed during the past two years.

MPP is having its major fundraising event of the year July 7. It's the Liberty Belle Ball at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles. Ticket prices go up June 16, so get yours now. They aren't cheap, but either is the good work the organization does year after year. If you can't attend in person, I'm sure they'd appreciate donations.
