Cannabis Control Commissions: Q & A

Under Act 164, which allows for regulated cannabis sales in Vermont, each municipality may create its own Cannabis Control Commission (CCC). We strongly recommend that every municipality opting into cannabis sales does this as soon as possible.

Planning for Cannabis

In Windham County, Brattleboro, Jamaica and Londonderry have already voted to allow retail cannabis sales, joining around 30 municipalities statewide. Across Vermont, five municipalities have voted against, including Ludlow. Other towns are still considering whether to hold a vote.
Because Windham County comprises a diverse cross-section of youth and vulnerable adult populations, many decisions will need to be made in advance of opening retail cannabis shops. Among them, how to regulate the cannabis industry, establish zoning, safeguards, permitting, licensing and other procedures – even local taxation. All these factors will be hotly debated by community stakeholders, but who will make the final decisions?
