The advancement of this legislation is another historic step for cannabis justice in Virginia. The bills now head to the Governor.
“Virginians have been clear in their support for this issue and Governor Northam agrees, it is time to legalize the responsible use of cannabis by adults in the Commonwealth.”
According to statewide polling data, 61 percent of Virginia adults support “the legalization of marijuana for recreational use by adults.”
Virginia NORML is thrilled to provide a direct line to the policymakers, researchers, and advocates who are championing cannabis policy reform in the Commonwealth, especially in light of the opportunities the 2021 Virginia General Assembly session presents for proposed legislation.
