Please Call Your State Representative Today To Support The New Marijuana Legalization bill H.170

Vermont House of Representatives will VOTE on legalization of marijuana, maybe today! Call 1-802-828-2228 and leave a message for your Representative. The Clerk should give your Representative a note card with your message!

"Speaker Mitzi Johnson has scheduled debate on the marijuana bill to come first, on Tuesday and Wednesday. H. 170 would allow adult possession of up to one ounce of pot. The bill would also permit adults to cultivate marijuana at home -- limited to two mature marijuana plants and four immature plants. No sale or taxation is permitted."
