RT News reported that the Vermont Senate has given the green light to a bill that would legalize recreational marijuana. The law would create a 25 percent sales tax on marijuana if passed.
As quoted in the publication:

The bill would allow adults age 21 or older to possess up to an ounce of marijuana, and create licenses for retailers and growers.
This wouldn’t make Vermont the first to legalize pot – four states and the District of Columbia have made recreational use of the drug legal. However, all of those places had their laws passed in referenda where voters were asked about the issue, bypassing their legislatures.

  1. The “War on Marijuana” has been a complete and utter failure. It is the largest component of the broader yet equally unsuccessful “War on Drugs” that has cost our country over a trillion dollars.
    Instead of The United States wasting Billions upon Billions more of our tax dollars fighting a never ending “War on Marijuana”, lets generate Billions of dollars, and improve the deficit instead. It’s a no brainer.
    The Prohibition of Marijuana has also ruined the lives of many of our loved ones. In numbers greater than any other nation, our loved ones are being sent to jail and are being given permanent criminal records which ruin their chances of employment for the rest of their lives, and for what reason?
    Marijuana is much safer to consume than alcohol. Yet do we lock people up for choosing to drink?
    Even The President of the United States has used marijuana. Has it hurt his chances at succeeding in life? If he had gotten caught by the police during his college years, he may have very well still been in prison today! Beyond that, he would then be fortunate to even be able to find a minimum wage job that would consider hiring him with a permanent criminal record. Let’s end this hypocrisy now!
    The government should never attempt to legislate morality by creating victim-less marijuana “crimes” because it simply does not work and costs the taxpayers a fortune.
    Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is an inevitable reality that’s approaching much sooner than prohibitionists think and there is nothing they can do to stop it!
    Legalize Nationwide!
