Vermont lawmakers have approved a modest expansion to the state’s medical marijuana program, permitting dispensaries to open more locations and expanding the list of medical conditions treatable with MMJ.
The House gave the bill preliminary approval on a voice vote Monday. The Senate has already approved the bill.
Vermont has four licensed nonprofit dispensaries. The approved measure would allow each existing dispensary to open two more locations.
In addition, the legislation would permit patients to both grow MMJ and purchase it from a dispensary.
In a previous version of the bill, patients had to choose between growing it themselves or buying it from a dispensary.
