All three members of the newly formed Vermont Cannabis Control Board will be appointed by the governor after being vetted by the Cannabis Control Board Nominating Committee. Pay is equal to that of a Vermont state judge.
Retail sales will only be allowed in communities that vote to opt-in. In other words: No marijuana retail store can open unless town voters affirmatively decide, at a warned meeting, to allow retail operations. Cultivation, testing, warehousing, and distribution are not subject to any municipal opt-in.
