State Lawmakers Expected To Establish Marijuana Marketplace This Year!

The General Assembly’s current session of legislators is coming to an end. They will probably depart without taking any steps to establish a marijuana retail industry. Virginia is in a precarious situation. Democrats who controlled the General Assembly and the Executive Mansion took moves to make marijuana legal.

Yet Democrats failed to establish a retail market when they were in charge, and the endeavor has stalled since Republicans took over the House of Delegates. Senator Adam Ebbin, a Democrat from Alexandria, says he doesn’t anticipate many changes until Democrats regain control of the House.

The logical progression of what we’ve already accomplished by legalizing marijuana in Virginia, According to Ebbin, “has been blocked by House Republicans.” Establishing a retail market, however, is not opposed by all Republicans. Republican from Fauquier County delegate Michael Webert claims that the issue is that Republicans hold such contrasting views.

A regulated marketplace “would look in a wide variety of ways,” according to Webert. As a result, “you have people who are much more open to the location of retail businesses and some who want to have an extremely tight-regulated market, almost like an ABC-type market.”

Legislators are thinking about taking a piecemeal approach to enforcing regulations on Delta 8 items that are being sold in smoke shops and petrol stations around Virginia since no legislation has been passed to establish the retail market.
