Canadian marijuana bill worries some Vermonters

Print More

Under the measure, minors found with a half-ounce or less would face civil penalties rather than criminal ones. Critics say the law could tempt U.S. teens to party in Canada. Teen alcohol-related car accidents are already a concern in northern Vermont since the legal drinking age in Quebec is 18.
