ttorney General TJ Donovan voiced support Thursday for legislation that would establish a regulated market for cannabis in Vermont, after he had previously expressed reservations about legalizing sales of the substance.
Donovan told the Senate Judiciary Committee that since Vermont moved to legalize limited possession and cultivation of the drug last year, his views on creating a market for the drug had “evolved.”
“We have to have a regulated market,” he said. “I don’t think we can continue to be silent on how Vermonters obtain it. At the end of the day, this is about protecting consumers and protecting kids.”
