Vermont will be the 9th state to legalize marijuana

Vermont is the ninth state to legalize marijuana, and the first state to do so through a legislative act rather than a ballot initiative. Vermont's Republican governor Phil Scott said he'll sign the bill into law.

The measure was passed despite Attorney General Jeff Sessions' letter to federal prosecutors telling them they were free to resume the disastrous, racist war on weed, despite the fact a majority of Trump voters are in favor of legalization.

Sessions' move also goes against Trump's promise to let states decide what to do about weed without federal interference.

At this point, the only people who want to crack down on people (mainly minorities) who use weed again are very old white conservatives and Patrick "I-was-addicted-to-heroin-therefore-people-must-be-punished-for-smoking-pot" Kennedy (whose latest stunt is trying to equate weed with "big tobacco.")
