Apr 28, 2019

The fate of the tax-and-regulate marijuana bill is up in the air as Gov. Phil Scott continues to insist on a roadside test for impairment. Many lawmakers and experts say no reliable test exists.

VPR's Bob Kinzel updates us on where the legislation stands.

He served as an advisor on drug policy for the George W. Bush and Obama administrations.
