FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
January 13, 2016
The Libertarian Party opposes the of criminalization of consensual and victimless behavior by responsible adults, and supports the right of people to do as they wish with their own body.
There is no good reason for marijuana to be banned for adult use. The collateral damage caused by cannabis prohibition is a far greater danger to public health and safety than cannabis consumption is. The free exercise of informed choice, voluntary consumption, consensual trade, and cultivation of cannabis among responsible adults must be protected by Vermont law.
The Vermont Libertarian Party asks the voters to contact their representatives to urge them to pass a comprehensive cannabis legalization bill during the 2016 legislative session.
