Senate Panel In Virginia Trying To Change Governor’s Plans For Legal Pot
As Virginia Governor Ralph Northam continues to push his legalization of marijuana bill in the legislature a Senate panel is straying from the proposal Northam has put together. Under Northam’s plan, localities could opt in for approval via a city ordinance. The Senate panel is pushing for a opt out by referendum proposal. Both measures would allow localities to reject legal marijuana retailers within their bounds. The Governor’s plan faces a tough road ahead. Just last week a coalition led by Smart Approaches To Marijuana launched an opposition campaign against the Governor’s approach.
