More Than 30 Cannabis Plants Found Growing In Flower Beds At The Vermont Statehouse
A police officer inspected the lawn on Monday and found what is believed to be either a hemp or marijuana plant. The chief said they found 34 immature plants that are too young to differentiate.
Further lab testing would be needed to figure out what the plants are, but Romei says the department has no plans to test them because it isn’t pursuing a criminal case.
“We also have no thoughts on why someone would plant it,” the department said. “But if anyone wants to claim it and let us know why they planted it, we are happy to listen.”
Vermont was the first state to legalize recreational cannabis through the legislature as opposed to by ballot in 2018 and legalized medicinal cannabis in 2004.
