On Tuesday, March 1, Vermont residents engaged in a range of discussions as part of Town Meeting Day. The all-important event happens on the first Tuesday of March every single year. Cannabis was a subject matter that really stood out during the meeting, with Vermonters voting to increase the number of towns that permit retail cannabis sales to individuals aged 21 and above. According to chair of the Vermont Cannabis Control Board, James Pepper, this occasion marks “a very important moment for Vermont.” “We want Vermonters to be able to access this product close to their home as opposed to having these cannabis deserts around Vermont,” explained Pepper. Vermont’s second-largest community, Essex – which was the biggest community to hold a cannabis-related vote at the recent meeting – approved adult-use cannabis sales with a vote of 3,589-2,473.  A handful of smaller towns have dismissed the idea of selling recreational cannabis to people aged 21 and above.
