Virginia lawmakers recently passed cannabis and criminal justice reforms, but Mark Herring says there’s much more to be done.
The governor and attorney general have put the state on a path toward legal adult use, starting with eliminating penalties for possession.
“It is clear to me that it is time for a new, smarter approach to cannabis in Virginia. And the question that we're here to answer today is: what does that look like?"
With the state AG’s support, the chances for cannabis reform in 2020 just got stronger. But legalization may have to wait.
