The Governor of Virginia, a state in the Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States, signed a pair of undistinguishable bills on Thursday to legalize CBD possession in the state.
Subsequent to the policymakers’ original passage of the actions in March, Gov. Ralph Northam suggested a series of modifications and directed the legislation back to the Senate and House of Delegates for deliberation.
The reviewed bills were sent back to Northam after which he officially permitted them. In a press release, Northam didn’t openly talk about the legalization. Nonetheless, he mentioned,
“proud of the accomplishments we made together during this General Assembly session.”
The Governor said,
“We advanced long-neglected priorities, including rights and protections for Virginians. We were able to redirect funding to address the COVID-19 pandemic, and a number of the laws we enacted are proving to be more important than ever.”
Notably, as per new legislation, keeping up to 1 ounce of cannabis will be punishable by a twenty-five USD fine with no danger of detention and no felonious record. Present Virginia law makes unpretentious possession punishable by a maximum fine of five hundred USD, a criminal record, and up to thirty days in prison.
