A man holds up a joint during a rally to support the legalization of marijuana on Capitol Hill in Washington last month.

Vermont's Legislature on Wednesday became the first in the country to vote to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.

The legislation, which passed the House by a 79-66 vote, would allow adults to possess and use small amounts of the drug beginning next year. The bill was identical to one passed last week by the Senate that also sets up a commission to study the best way to regulate marijuana.

The bill now heads to Republican Gov. Phil Scott, whose spokeswoman said he's not philosophically opposed to legalizing marijuana but must be sure the bill answers certain public safety and health questions.

"He'll review the bill when received to determine if those questions are addressed," spokeswoman Rebecca Kelley said after the vote.

If Scott signs the legislation it will become law on July 1, 2018.

Under the legislation, small amounts of marijuana would be legal to possess and grow for anyone over age 21. Larger amounts would remain illegal.

A nine-member commission will develop a proposal to tax and regulate marijuana, and the proposal will be presented to lawmakers next year.

Before Vermont's vote, eight states and the District of Columbia had legalized the recreational use of small amounts of marijuana. The vote by Vermont lawmakers, however, was the first to legalize marijuana separate from a voter initiative.

The hour-long debate before the vote featured impassioned comments by some lawmakers who felt legalizing marijuana would lead to increased substance abuse, car accidents and other unintended consequences.

"This is voting for trouble. We've got a lot of problems, and this is only going to make it worse," said Rep. Ben Joseph, a Democrat from North Hero.

But opponents' arguments were countered by others who said that marijuana use is already prevalent in Vermont and passing the law could give the state a say in its regulation, end the black market and possibly increase state revenue.

"What is changing is the landscape of our region," said Rep. Ruqaiyah Morris, a Democrat from Bennington, whose home is less than 10 miles from Massachusetts, where retail marijuana sales are due to begin in mid-2018. "This is going to happen. We can either be pro-active and be part of this conversation and ensure we are thinking about all these things, including some sort of a mechanism to address them, or we can just take a wait-and-see approach and deal with it next year."

It's on the Governor's desk now. Even though our governor is a Republican, he is no friend of Trump OR Sessions. I hope he doesn't cave to pressure from the Trump Lackey Republicans.

I am looking forward to having our state be a thorn in General Sessions' Racist, Bigoted, Murderous and Treasonous Trump Lackey side.


     

Vermont is about to have an environmentally sane GROWTH INDUSTRY!

Ah swear, they're jes' powerful mad about the President's ungentlemanly treatment of their Big Dog an now ah gotta deal with all this drug crime on our border. Hmmm. Ah wonder how many black folks live up there. We might be able to snag a few at the border. Gotta keep our MAGA prison guards employed, after all...

The Endocannabinoid System and the Important Role It Plays in Human Health

Written by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

February 10, 2019

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

֍ Cannabinoid receptors in the human body were discovered in the 1990s, which in turn led to the realization that we make compounds in our body — endogenous cannabinoids — that influence these receptors

֍ Endocannabinoid deficiency has been identified in people who have migraines, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory and neurological conditions and a variety of treatment-resistant conditions

֍ While CBD has gained the most attention, CBD alone cannot fully support your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). You need the other phytocannabinoids and terpenes as well

֍ Hemp has been outlawed in the U.S. since 1938. The latest Farm Bill, signed into law at the end of 2018, makes it legal again; hemp oil with full-spectrum phytocannabinoids may benefit a wide range of health problems

֍ There’s an intimate relationship between your ECS and your omega-3 status. Omega-3 fats make your cannabinoid receptors more active, and are used as backbone structures to produce cannabinoids in your body

Agelbert NOTE: The CBDs (plus phytoCBS and terpenes) can now legally be extracted from the flower, unlike the previous method shown below. That means it will be cheaper. 👍
