Vermont to study marijuana legalization

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- The Shumlin administration is preparing to launch a study of what marijuana legalization might look like in Vermont.

Administration Secretary Jeb Spaulding, whose agency was requested by the Legislature to do the study, says it likely will look at the two other states that have gone first on legalization: Colorado and Washington state.

Lawmakers asked that the study be done by January. Spaulding says that can be achieved, but he says Colorado and Washington may not have had enough experience by then to provide good data.

Legislation calling for the study said one focus should be on the potential revenue the state could collect if it taxed and regulated marijuana.
