A public hearing on the legalization of marijuana in Vermont is scheduled for Wednesday. The hearing will be held statewide via Vermont Interactive Television.
Earlier this year, the Vermont Legislature ordered the administration to study marijuana legalization, with a report due in January, reports the Associated Press.
The state contracted with the RAND Drug Policy Research Center to study the production, distribution, and possession of cannabis.
Wednesday's hearing will be held by Secretary of Administration Jeb Spaulding and Beau Kilmer, who co-directs the RAND Drug Policy Research Center.
Spaulding and Kilmer will make brief presentations, after which people attending the meeting will be allowed to ask questions and make comments.
